I'm a single mum of a nearly 4 year old and am thinking of going to Uni.
Has anyone on here done/doing the same thing.
Want to know how hard it is, did you work whilst studying etc.
Any info would be a great help!
Thanks in advance

i am studying by distance at the moment, only two units for this semester because bub is with me full time and i only get to study after he goes to sleep.
I am doing humanity courses so mainly writing assignments, i found it manageble as i tend to finissh my assignments ahead of time.
but i am doing this course mainly to keep my brain working. I am thinking to apply other practical courses at the moment so that i can get a job.
my son is 18m old now, if yours is older and goes to kindy or daycare, it could be much easier.

Hi I study part time, work part time and have a 3 year old. It's tough sometimes but if you apply yourself and stay organised it can definitely be done. I only have exams to go this semester and have managed to get all my assignments in on time and with good grades. I'm stressing about studying for the exams because I didn't get all of my prescribed readings done over semester so it's more like cramming than revision right now but hey, as long as I pass it's all good! Make sure you study something you are passionate about otherwise you will just lose interest. I am really interested in what I'm studying which is why I have made it a priority. Best of luck!

Forgot to say I am also studying by distance/online, much easier in my opinion. As long as you don't procrastinate too much!

Hi I have one more exam to go and have completed my masters. It has all been external mostly online. To b honest u have to b disciplined and not let the work get too far ahead. I've been working full time, no kids but now pregnant. I think it's best to start off slow and build up the number of subjects to see what you can handle per semester. Good luck, there is a great sense of achievement however it can get stressful when things are due. What are u thinking of studying?

I think I have to do Open Foundation first as I didn't do my schooling here.
Then I'd love to study to be a secondary school teacher.
Just need to weigh up the pro's and cons.

Im currently studying through distance ed too. Im doing 2 subjects this semester but will be doing 3 next semester (I also study 1 over summer time). I have 3 kids. I know with the 3 subjects I must keep up with study but I find that anytime I get behind I just use the holidays to catch up. Hasn't affected me so much coz I keep getting HD and D Good Luck

My bub is due in a few weeks and I'm going to be continuing my studies in secondary teaching. I wish I chose a different specialisation (I chose History haha I like it but I don't really think I want to teach it forever, I'm also dropping my Diploma in Languages once this semester is over though I would still like to be a LOTE teacher, it's too much work doing the two I should've just chosen one).

I have studied since DS was 4months old (he is now 7). I have done multiple combinations but for the last 5 years I have worked full time and studied part time by distance. It can be hard at times but I take each assignment/study period one at a time and deal with the next when it comes. I'm usually behind in my course work but I have managed to pass every single subject thus far. I'm currently on my last 2 subjects of my degree- less than a month til it's all over red rover!
