    Hey there I was on a nursing course last year and there were about 6 - 10 single mums and other mums who had partners, they all managed as successfully as everyone else. I've left now so I can only say that they managed for the first year but I haven't heard that any of them have left 😊 I'm sure u will be fine, u will just obviously have to be very organised

    Holy crap, you got a very though life for a few years then. I am guessing the only income source would be to take loans from several banks and pay it off slowly once you get your degree, orrrr you can drop your kids at a caring center and pick them up at night so you can pay off the bills.
