Msc Mental Health and Wellbeing Wolverhampton University

Hi all,
Looking for some advice. I’m a single Mom working part time and have just been accepted on this course. Is it worth doing? Will I be able to cope being a mature student with 2 young children?!
I’ve not studied for years so a bit apprehensive about doing it now.
Any advice appreciated
Thanks

Only you can say if it is worth it or not. If it is something that you really have your heart set, go for it. It would be hard with young children and working, you can always try it and if you feel like it is too much, you have the option of leaving or deferring the course. Don’t give up without trying plus universities are able to support you in areas where you feel like you may need help. It will help a lot if you have good family support and a flexible job.

Thankyou for your reply. I’m taking out student finance so not sure how this works if I can’t manage the course? Any ideas?

You’ll have to repay the loan but you don’t start repaying unless you earn over £25,000 a year.

Thanks ☺️ does there need to be special circumstances to drop out?

No. They will try and convince you to stay but it is your decision at the end of the day.

It's actually £21,000 for a Masters.

Hi - I am a mature student too and I know at least a couple of others that are too so don't worry about that. :smile:
