    Not a mom but I house husband, lol, gave up work to care for my autistic son who is now 10. Starting my access course in Sept and hoping to go to Aston to study economics next year. Terrified about getting the balance right between study and home life but I know I have to make it work, as much for my family as myself.

    Access to Biomedical/Biological sciences. I'm enjoying getting the old brain working again and if I'm honest I'm surprising myself!!

    Wish I had done it first time round, but there we go!!

    I know what your saying with regards to doing it now, if I'm honest I know I will try harder now than when I was 17 -18. I have matured and have more at stake, with to little kids watching me. I want to show them with hard work and dedication it can be done.

    My little boy would tend to be a little lazy and I am hoping to rub off on him.

    Oh definetly! At 17-18 i wanted to party. Haha! Thats what pushed me more than ever was being a role model to my children. To show them that they can achieve anything if theu put their minds to it im sure your boy will be proud of his mam working hard my son knows if ive got work and i always tell him its important to do your work the best you can. His teachers have told me hes knuckled down now and tells his friends to leave him be until hes finished

    Im waiting anxiously to start now. I dont want to stop learning incase my brain freezes haha! I often think im mot brainy enough and espec now going into law as ive done none of it in college lol! But i am willing to learn and i do quite quickly so im hopeful lol! Through college i felt awful that i didnt spend alot of time with the kids, half term them nagging me to go out etc and i couldnt as i had a mountain of work to do. But all this is to benefit them aswell in the future. It will be worth it.

    We will be fine time management is key and as you said self learning. We can do it x

    I would say when you get all of the information you need in regards to what subjects your doing and the work then make a timetable where you organise work time and family time. Also to make it fun and less stressful for both you and your family why not involve your family? By that I mean for example if your studying Science take them to a Science museam that will not only make your studies fun, and involve your family but you'll find you'll enjoy your studies more as your combining two things you love if that makes sense.

    I'm studying access to he business and have already downloaded the course info but obviously don't know which units I'll be doing yet, still I've been reading up on some of the topics already and will continue doing so over the summer. I'll be honest and say that I'm not the best at sticking to timetables, but I hate leaving things to last minute. I tend to get stuck in straight away and won't stop till I'm pretty much done. I already know I'll be studying whilst my sons at school and when he goes to bed so that I have time with him at weekends and can help him with school work etc after school. Involving him in it sounds like a good idea but with it being business I'm going to have to think up some ideas on how to do it.

    Hi.

    I have just finished my 2nd year of an English lit degree. I have four children, my eldest is 13 and my youngest is 4.

    It is extremely difficult finding time to study. I try to dedicate the hours they are at school solely to studying, however, that doesn't always work as there is still shopping, tidying, laundry to be done, not to mention the other 5000 random events that need attention. Then there are school holidays and illnesses to deal with!

    That said I am thoroughly enjoying being a student and am a little sad that this is my last year (unless I get on a PGCE afterwards). I am proof that it can be done. I have just had my results for my 2nd year and have come out with a 2.1, which I am absolutely elated about, I never ever thought it possible given the little amount of time I for some assignments.

    Best of luck.
