What's your top tip for other student parents?

Keep up with the work and do not leave things to the last minute. If you have any concerns at all, seek help. It is always there: you just have to ask.

To improve my employability and earning potential.

What are the best bits of university life?

Meeting people.

What have been the biggest challenges?

Juggling work home life with full time studying.

How do you cope with money?

Not well. I am in debt and after this degree I owe £20,000.

What do you wish you had known before you started?

That some of the lectures would be late evening and afternoon.

How do you juggle your responsibilities?

I had to allocate time to each of my tasks, for example spend 3 hours on a subject, then put it all away.

Where will you be in 10 years time?

Hopefully in a well-paid job or self employed.
