Greetings from Kitwe. We have been collecting useful information e.g. from Global Connections, Oscars, NHS and UK government sites about accessing universities in the UK for our son (who will finish his A levels in Zambia in November). 

We would be interested to hear from other parents who have fairly recently gone through this process, their successes and failures with universities since they seem to follow their own pathways.

My name is Jo I am studying for a Masters in Psychology at Oxford Brookes.

My dissertation is  about TCKs experiences of identity formation when transitioning back to their parental passport country.

I am currently looking for participants to interview. If  you or anyone  you know  might be interested do get in  touch.

Hi everybody,

I'm an MK who has grown up and I'm now attending university in Wales. I'm studying Documentary Film and Television and I'm starting my last year in September; this means I've had to start thinking about the last documentary film I want to make before I graduate, and I've decided to focus on the lives on missionary kids. 

I would like to look at families that have recently returned or are preparing to return to the UK, and what it means to be a stranger in your own country. Obviously this is a topic I know a lot about so I will treat it very sensitively. If you or anyone you know would be interested in participating or learning more about it, please message me or email me at 

God bless,

Hi all, my name is Heidi and I am a missionary kid. I have just joined Oscaractive and am enjoying it so far.

I grew up in India, England and Norway and have just finished writing a book about being a TCK. "Home Keeps Moving" is the book title...Ruth E. Van Reken wrote a great foreword....and it will be out in a matter of WEEKS! It is published in America by McDougal Publishing but will be available worldwide.

My book is a more personal account of the challenges, experiences and perspectives of being a missionary kid. As I scouted the globe in search of more TCK literature, I realised there wasn't a whole lot out there and decided to write a book myself! I recruited a few TCK friends from near and far to add their stories too. I have set up a blog which explains a little more about it and will have updates on its progress:

I would appreciate your feedback and hope you enjoy my book!
