I will be starting a post graduate program at the University of Reading in October. I will be moving with my husband, who works from home, and my two children, aged 3.5 and 5.5
I have a Mexican passport, while my husband are children are Italian citizens.
The program lasts 12 months.
I have some questions:
a) I suppose I need a bank account. What bank should I prefer?
b) I will be transferring funds to said account from my trust fund in the US. Are there any fiscal implications to this? I'm thinking GBP20K
c) My eldest child will be starting school in a month precisely. He's never been to school, only preschool, so he can read slowly, write clumsily and slowly, and does no math yet. Should I enroll him in Reception class or in first grade?
d) We will try to rent a furnished house, but in case we find one that we really like and it's not furnished, recommendations for cheap European moving services?
e)any general advice you can think of re. moving to England is welcome.
