Abstract

Challenges and barriers for student parents and carers
Alongside increased participation in higher education we have seen increased diversity amongst
the student body. Despite this increased diversification of the student body it has been
suggested that British universities are still organised to cater for students who are young and
without caring responsibilities (Marandet and Wainwright, 2009) and university policies do not
address the needs of students with children (Lyonette et al, 2015).
