Nobody knows exactly how many student parents exist because institutions are not required to collect this information. However, research suggests that the majority of student parents are female, mature students who are studying part time. Student parents are at risk of leaving their courses due to immediate worries about lack of time and money for childcare, on the flip side however, personal ambition and creating long-term financial security are the main motivations for student parents sticking with their course. This guide will provide practical and informative advice about the realities of being a student parent including the two most important considerations, finances and childcare. It will dispel myths about typical students, assess why parents make good students, look at how teenage pregnancy does not preclude higher education and give tips on dealing with student life whilst managing parenting responsibilities along with advice for academic success. Written by a former student parent, this book contains information on becoming pregnant whilst in education, funding and benefits available, childcare, student life, dealing with deadlines and exams and helping your children to understand your studies.
