Hot Topic! Student Parents needs you!

Whilst attending the Leeds University Student Parent Easter Party, I asked a group of student parents what advice and information they would most like to know, that could not be provided by their union or university support officer. Overwhelmingly, I was told by those in the group, that they worried about how their decision to have a child early would effect their career path. They told me how they would like to hear from former student parents about how they coped and how having a baby whilst studying effected them in life after university.

Luckily, we have found a former student parent, Cheryl Wood who is at hand to share her experience and advice with Student Parents. Before I conduct an interview, I would like to ask you, the student parents of today, what you would like me to ask Cheryl on your behalf. Do you have any burning questions you want answered? Currently at the beginning of a 3 year degree and want some top tips?

Well then get in touch! This is your chance to ask a former student parent anything you like!

You can contact Student Parents via email, twitter or facebook…just check out our Contacts Page.

I look forward to hearing from you!
