What would you do?


Me again because no one knows about my pregnancy I need some advice!
I am due to start college in September to do a one year access to higher education course, and then you attend university the following September.
When I found out I was expecting, I emailed and asked could I attend college right up to my due date, take three months but do all the work from home. Then return after three months and be back in the college setting may and June. But the college aren't recommending I do that (I'm guessing they cant say I can't when they've already been accepted just because I'm pregnant?). Would you leave it? The other option is a similar course through the Open University (k101) which would be from home the full year?
I'm really stuck on what to do, because I feel really determined to get to higher education, and I feel like I could do it but I don't want to set myself up to fail.
I've attached the email I received from the college today.

It will be because of the work load normally the last 3 months of a course and intense and you will miss alot of stuff in class and to be honest my experience with collage they aren't that great on giving you work you miss or living you work when you know your going to be off even just for a week to do at home. I'd go with the OU personally hun because you know you have all the course work and lessons ect there and your not chasing tutors for it

Thank you miss waiting, I think I am going to go with the OU as there is much more flexibility and with being pregnant and having 3 children that will always help! Plus, I know I won't have to leave my baby after three months that will be hard since I normally breastfeed. Thank you for your reply, helped me look at it better

Your most welcome. I went back to collage and did beauty only 3 years ago now but I still worked part time and it was such a nightmare as I had hospital appointments and all sorts as I'd just gotten in with the pain team and I had a few times off sick beucase I catch bugs so easily so I missed out on alot it was only that some of the ladies I was on the course with let me check their notes that I kept up as my tutor was to busy to back track for just me. Glad I could help hun xx
