    I have and application where I am being asked whether or not I am the first in family to go to university. Neither of my parents has finished any course at university level,nor did my sister. The problem comes when considering the fact that two of my grandparents have been to university, both having Engineering degrees from a Romanian university, I am not sure if they count or not . Please let me know if you know if they should count or not.
    Thanks in advance

    It's meant in an influencing kind of way. So if these are distant relatives that you barely see they haven't influenced your educational choices. But if you lived with them they would be a large influence on your life. So this is something that you need to decide for yourself - did their educational background help at all when deciding to apply to a UK university?

    They don't specify, which is irritating. It was confusing for me to fill that out too, I think they mean immediate family but I don't think it makes that big a difference. I think they ask for their own records and student counts.
