Securing your children’s education

Education can be expensive in any country that has a reputation for excellence. So whether your children choose to study back home or go to university outside of the UK, long-term financial planning is important.

The total cost of going to university can be over GBP 100,000, even in the UK as your children are likely to be treated as international students. Unlike domestic students, your children would be unlikely to qualify for government- sponsored support such as a tuition-fee loan.

With tuition and course fees, room and board, living and travel overheads to consider, careful long-term planning could be the difference between your children getting a university education or not. 

By committing to realistic financial plans for your children’s education, you can rest assured that you have laid a strong foundation for their future.
