    Hi, I'm 29 and up until now I've been unable to commit to academic study. Initially because of mental health difficulties and then financial constraints. But I've finally made it to this point and I start psychology at Lincoln in a few weeks excited and terrified!

    Hi very similar situation here, both children under 3 years old, have been working since I left school and now about to start an access to science course at the age of 30.

    Nervous and excited at the same time, good luck

    Nice I have two kids myself, but I am the man of the house. Looking also to persue a few qualifications via DL but tbh I already work in my chosen industry.

    I'm in a similar situation. My daughter is 2 and I'm starting university on Monday for a 4 year degree in teaching. I'm so nervous but less about lessons and timetables and more about the logistics of collecting her from her nursery and getting her home for dinner etc...

    Good luck with your studies!
