And they pointed out the fact that they will be sent to a Uni that is at home. Therefore, one can say that s(he) lives in Canada.
the OP also said they'll be off to canada. Therefore one can say that they are not from Canada :P

But international fee's in Canada are as expensive as international fee's here (I looked into it as I wanted to go over there!)

Why is the OP refusing to say where they are from?

Actually, I study in Bahrain but am a Chinese national. Sorry I went to sleep. :yes:

Crap. I should have made myself clearer.
Home = china for me.
So my dear father said if you don't get into to a good university then your either going back home (to China) or studying in Canada.

okay, problem solved. You can opt to go to Hong Kong and then exchange to Warwick.

Hmm, that is a very traditional chinese view on education. Tbh, unless you're going to one of the top tier unis in the UK then you might be just as well off going to a Chinese uni (bearing in mind the fees are £10000 a year for the lowest charging course for chinese nationals, 100000 yuan a year is quite a lot in China.

absolutely. that's also why i'm hesitating over the issue whether i am going to study in Warwick or not, which has already given me an unconditional offer for postgraduate study but i am worrying if i can get a decent a job after graduation or at least if i will be able to work there since i've heard many british citizens even have difficulties in finding jobs themselves.

as for international students, i take the view that only in oxbridge does one a degreee can guarantee him/her a job in the UK though it may sound a bit crucial. well, graduating from other top 10 unis might also enable one to get a job there but i guess it would be much less competitive and makes it more possible happen on him if there's a layoff. what do you think?

it's not 100000 anymore since the exchage rate has been raised so the OP's father has to pay nearly 160000 rnb for each year's tution fees.

To be blunt, your father is probably correct in doing that. Studying in the UK is very expensive, even for home students (who pay 1/4-1/6 of the international fees and have access to loans). He believes that, to make the cost justifiable, you should go to a highly ranked university and it isn't an unreasonable view because of the high expenditure. In addition, if you are coming from abroad then the chances of you working abroad are much greater and you will probably require a highly ranked university on your C.V. to stand any chance with a company.
agreed~ i think it's really really hard for a foreigner to get a work permit in the UK especially when he comes from far east country so unlike other british, he has to study in the top 5 unis to get him an opportunity to work here although i admit there are still many many good unis and courses in the UK. if OP's dad were to invest such a large sum of money on him for studying in the UK and he were to turn out to be unable to work here, what a loss it would be!

i know a chinese girl who finished her study in oxford uni as a geography major student and believe it or not~finally, she was hired by a famous british firm working as a manager in market department.

't forget reputation an ranking, while it's not the end and all, does say something about teaching and research quality, and employability.
basically you're saying you don't find this as imprtant as your father does, and you're ok with attendng just any decent uni with a nice programm.
but if you havent your heart and mind set on a particulat uni or place, what's so terribly wrong with going to canada? if you research a bit, you sure find a uni or college there that offers a course you like?
you probably dreamed about going to uni in the uk, but if it's not a particular place you need to attend for whatever reason, then you probably have to open up to the possibility of going to somewhere else, where things can be great.
either way, you should probably focus on achieving good grades for now.
