    Hi,

    It says on the link below that parents are 'expected' to help towards their child's university education if they are over the threshold. Can someone define 'expected' for me please? Is it equivalent to legally obligated or is it voluntary?

    Many thanks.

    if you don't qualify for a grant they will be expected to pay about £1000 a year. Sadly it can't be enforced!

    It means people from a high income household won't get a grant because richer parents tend to contribute to their child's education. This is by no means obligatory.
