    Both went to uni...
    Since both my parents come from Somalia, it wasn't easy. They both got full scholarships (provided by the UN) to unis abroad. My dad studied business management and finance at UMIST. My mom studied medicine at a uni in Italy but specialized at Cardiff.

    Um no they didn't go to Uni. My Dad left school at 16 and my Mum did some short vocational course at some college. I'm a bit confused about that to be honest.

    None of my parents went to Uni, my dad never went to school and one of his reports from his teacher said - we have no knowledge of this boy - and my mum was one of those rejects who just pissed about and had fun, I am not saying I am not proud of my parents, but I want a better education than they got, saying that even though my dad never went to school, he is one of the cleverest men I know.

    My mum and dad both left school when they were 16! My mum has since returned to college to do an NVQ though, and my dad did loads of other exams (not sure for what, as i was about 3 when he did them!). I'd be the first person ever in my family to go to uni!

    My mum went to Leeds, my dad went to a university in Kenya. None of their siblings went (so I guess I got the brainy genes).

    My maternal grandparents were Oxford and Cambridge though... darn.

    Both of my parents have degrees. My dad has his Ph.D in physics (also a dissertation away from a masters in hospital administration) and my mother has her degree in chemistry. However, neither of them use their degrees at all. My Dad runs a small business and my mother is a homemaker... Needless to say they were a little upset when my brother decided he would be studying philosophy.

    Very few of my family members went into higher education or uni. Neither of my parents did.
