    Hi all,

    Are there any mature students / parents who plan to go back to uni or have already started?

    I am 34 and have two boys (6 & 2) and have decided to go back to uni after graduating back in 2005!

    I feel like all of my brain has leaked out and I can't remember much out of my school/uni days... short of getting my 2+2 wrong. 🙈

    Hi,

    Yes I am 36 and currently doing an access course at college, the plan being to go to uni next year. I have two kids (6 & 3), so far all has been more than manageable but we have been broken in gently at college and I know it is going to pick up next week after the half term. I know what you mean about feeling your brain as leaked out, after a couple of weeks I discovered it was still in there somewhere , it just needs a little training!

    Hey. That sounds a sensible plan of action! What are you hoping to study at uni?

    Thanks! They’re my proudest achievement. My eldest has told me that I’m inspiring her to think about going to uni when she’s 18. It felt amazing when she told me that ❤️

    This is exactly what I was thinking: I tell my children they can be anything, but I have worked in a field I don't care for for 11 years... so I don't really practice what I preach. Going back to uni hopefully will show them that I meant what I said!
