There are a fair few mums and dads on my course too (also medicine). Most are in their mid 20's/early 30's.

I know of someone on a housemates course who is 19 with 2 young kids, and she seems to be managing ok. Some uni have better facilities regarding child care/support than others

That is so true. The one great thing about QMUL, it would seem, is its child care facilities. One of my PBL group member's little boy goes to QM nursery, and he is sooo cute. He's about 2 and a half now, and he thinks he's at University with his mummy. I guess he is, but Bleeeeeeeesssss!

I will be going to uni in 2007 with a "step" son, but not a baby of my own.

I have 2 sons and 3 stepchildren and i'm going to uni this sept.

My youngest is 7.....so he is in full time school so i'll be ok..................feel guilty though! I suppose I've dedicated 8 years of my life to my children, so not being there until 6/7pm is going to be tough on them and myself.

I work atm but only until 2pm which allows me to pick them up 4rm school and all that, so 4rm sept i'm going to have to find a childminder who will pick them up and keep them until I get there. Then it'll be the cooking problem...........which i've sussed out............i'm going to do all the weeks cooking on a Saturday and freeze them.......Instant ready made meals!

Hubby can do the cleaning!!!

One of my sister's friends had a baby in her last year of school and went straight on to Uni, she seemed to manage really wel, but she had a lot of help from her Mum, who more or less looked after her all the time

My sister's best friend has just gone back to University to do midwifery. It's best to pick a local University.
