Education Fee Planning
There is no substitute for a good education – family environment aside, it’s possibly the main ingredient for a successful and happy life. As such, whoever you are and wherever you reside in the world, your children’s schooling should be considered a priority when thinking about your future finances.
For expats, education brings a very distinct set of challenges – language, upheaval, choice of institution. But, despite all this, educating children privatelybrings with it enormous opportunity, allowing young people to enjoy the experience of another culture, another language and a rich panoply of experiences unavailable to peers schooled in their country of origin.
As a parent, grandparent or relative, you will have to address the question of whether you wish children to attend a local or international school.
This is why it’s best to start planning for education fees early. Expats will have numerous decisions to make when it becomes time to send children to school, college and, eventually, university, so it pays to have your education fee planning strategy ready and set up well in advance.
