Parents without a University degree – discount on the fees?
My son is thinking of going to university in Sept 2016 and heard that because neither my husband nor I have been to uni he is entitled to a discount on the fees. Is this correct?
This is something that may apply, depending on the course and university that he is interested in attending. It is true that many unis offer a discount or a bursary to the first member of a family at uni. The information will be available on university websites and he should check if it is not clear.
