    Hi i’m a single parent and going through a divorce. I’m on universal credits which is helping me pay my rent and bills. I have the opportunity to go to university full time and fullfill a dream. But i’m so scared i will not be able to pay my bills if i do this. I’m obviously very happy to work aswel as studying and looking after my children. I would just like to know if anybody else has been in this situation and managed to study aswel as keeping a roof over your head.


    Many Thanks

    I really admire this! I am also planning to go back to university to chase my dreams but often I worry about bills and childcare fees. It helps if you can study part time and work, hopefully I can work during the day and study at night, 1 lecture per week in the evenings. The way I am thinking it’s only for a season and the rewards will Worth it and not to mention the better career prospects. Wishing you the best.
