TCK Resource List
This list has been compiled by several TCK consultants. It covers almost all areas of concern from children in transition to special educational needs, from the TCK experience to multilingualism. It is probably one of the most thorough lists of TCK resources you will come across. Download here.
UK Residency for Students
The rules for UK residency for higher education can seem to be very rigid with an absolute requirement for 3 years living in the UK itself before any application. Many parents and prospective students fear that otherwise they will be classed as international students with higher fees and no access to the student loan system. THIS IS NOT THE CASE. Workers with mission agencies and similar organisations are normally classified as ordinarily resident in the UK based temporarily overseas at the request of the employer. This is good news and means that students can go to the end of school overseas and apply to study in the UK as a UK resident. More detail can be found in this document.
Educare is published 4 times a year (January, March, June, September) and covers a wide range of third culture issues from preparation of children for cross-cultural living to re-entry to the passport country, boarding to home schooling and much more. It is available free of charge on request from Eurotck.net.
