    Uni for Thai born Brit

    My daughter is 2, so obviously we have 16 years to answer this question.
    she is a british passport holder/ dual citizenship
    but recently have got to thinking about her hopeful highare education.
    does anybody know what the technicalities are?
    my understanding is she will have to register with an LEA (cheshire or Merseyside in my case) and be there for all of 3 years to qualify for LEA support.
    This si not definitive as the department of education iwebsite s fooking useless
    my question is should this be the 3 years before she goes to Uni or will any 3 consecutive years do?
    no biggie but obviously it will coincide with ILR for the wife etc.
    and it makes a big difference in choosing which school to send her to here in the meantime

    any info would be appraciated and rewarded with snot

    I'm not sure how useful this is as I was a mature student and long-term British resident when I went to university. Anyhoo, I moved to a different LEA about 6 months before starting university in the same area. I applied for the full benefits from them and got it all so... I think that it may be more the case that she may have to have resided in the UK for 3 years rather than one LEA so, if you send her to school in England or Wales before that you should be okay.

    As an aside, doesn't Thailand ask people to choose whether they are Thai or British when they turn 18, or is that just some BS that someone fed me in a pub?

    this is actually some useful info but unlikely to be valid in 16 years
    the issue is do i need to go or just send her to the old's
    may even send her to the convicts as that seems cheaper, but the partial lobotomy required puts me off
    thanks, have some grob

    I'm pretty sure that she just needs a permanent address in the LEA through which she's applying for the dosh so the wrinklies will be fine.

    I think it's between 20-21, but there is no penalty if you don't choose and decide to keep both nationalities.

    i think it's impossible to guess what structure the british education system is gonna have in the next 15 years. thigns are changing rapidly right now and will so for some time.

    I think that'll be more to do with the state system from secondary down. I promote decimation for student underperformance!

    Yes - resident in the UK/EU in the 3 years before starting, that is. But, as Hales said, things could change by the time your little one reaches 18.
