Hi

i was wondering what saving options are there, as a parant i want to save for my child so they dont have to worry about a student loan when they goto Uni?

any practicle ISAs which gives good rates making the investment worthwhile by the time child reaches uni age and keeps the parent in control in case your child turns out to be a total tool and want to waste your savings on a shopping spree.

thanks for your help :)

+1, I would be looking at investing in some extra tuition now.

Get an investment ISA in your name and just keep it for the child when you feel they are old enough.

Saving accounts are pointless, the value of money while stored in them means it'll be worthless when you take it out. If you have a mortage over pay on that then draw-down on the mortgage later.

Do what a couple of guys at work have done. Their kids have taken the student loan and all they're doing now is paying their kids the same amount as they pay back to the load company each month. So, they're essentially paying the student loan for them, but without shelling out loads either at the start of their degree course.

If you want an isa get them a junior one, no point in using yours.

Dont take this advice as you wanted control of it. If you take a Junior ISA the child can just cash it in and you cannot do anything about it.

dont think they can touch it until they are 18, if my memory serves me correctly, which it often doesn't!

"Money in the account belongs to the child, but they can’t withdraw it until they turn 18, apart from in exceptional circumstances. They can, however, start managing their account on their own from age 16."

amazed myself there ..
