I enrolled 2 weeks ago
I am finally doing my diploma in Beauty Therapy on campus through Ellabache. I have already obtained my certificates III and IV in Beauty Therapy, but the diploma was put on hold when I had my first son. I think I need to brush up on my skills, it's been a long time since I have done anything apart from being a mum.
I thought a chat thread for us 2012 studying parents would be a good idea, atleast we would all have something in common
So who else is studying and what are you studying?

I am studying next year. I am in 2nd year uni Psych. Though considering a change to Social Work. I have just had a 6 month break so I am debating to take another 6 months or do 1 subject first semester and see how I go. Working 3 days, studying and mothering!

I'll be continuing with my studies as of semester 2 next year, as I unfortunately have to defer semester 1 as I'm due to have this bub right around exam time and there is no way of giving me an earlier exam and I don't want a later one as I'll be breastfeeding and can't be away from bub for too long as he/she will be so tiny. But come semester 2 I'll be back into studying my BA in psychology criminology & justice through edith cowan university I can't wait, which is crazy because I just had my last exam this afternoon so I should be stoked I have 6 months off I have about another 18 months of study to go until I graduate.
Good luck to everyone who is beginning their studies though, and those who are continuing!!

I have applied to study graduate entry nursing next year, and will have 12mth old start some daycare, some time at home with Dad.
I have previously completed a degree in political studies/sociology while pregnant/nursing/caring for two other children. I studied during the day and visited the daycare at every break, to breastfed, share lunch, change nappy, put to bed etc...I would be up a lot at night essay writing and breastfeeding LOL
I haven't had to do clinical placements before and not sure exactly what is involved (tried to look it up but very minimal information) - so will be a new challenge.
Good luck to all the other student-working-nurturing mothers
