    hey, i've got a question. I am going to university with 17, and my parents don't live in the UK, and there is no one that can be my guardian. but one of my universities asked me for a guardian or something in the UK that they can speak to. Is there any way of getting one? like in host families or something? or do they still have to accept me even if i don't have a guardian, as long as my parents give me the permission?

    It sounds to me as though you are an international applicant. Whether you live with your parents or not, it is likely that they have legal responsibility for you until you reach the age of 18, unless someone else has taken over the role of parental responsibility for any reason. I would therefore recommend that you tell them to speak to your parents in this instance, but be sure to explain your circumstances to them. This will allow them to advise you further.
