Pregnancy, Maternity, Paternity & Adoption


Having a baby as a student might seem a completely overwhelming prospect, but it is possible.
If you don’t feel able to raise a child, but don’t want to end the pregnancy, then adoption is a further option.

You might find it useful to read the  University's Guidance for Students having a child.
