If interested in distance learning, the Open University and University of London (External) seem only interested in current residence, not the last 3 years.

It is an average of £10k per year. Remember each Uni determines their own criteria for home student status.

Ok thanks for that I will keep it in mind...

Thanks for that - we found a [legitimate] way around the three year residency requirement in the end.

Thumbs up Re: Question about School/Uni in UK if returning

Thanks for the advice everyone I'm holding on to the small shred of hope that the ex might let me take the kids back to uk in three years time (they'll be 14 and 11 then), once they are bit older and able to make their own decisions a bit better, and I've finished my degree. So thanks, it's best to be armed with all the info.

I think I would go insane if I resign myself to having to stay until they are both 16 (denial is a better option!). it sucks :-(
