    How do I go about it? Because from what I can see it's basically a no shot unless you have family out there.

    I'm fed up of **** old England. I so want a change. I don't even know what has made this come on. It's like I've just decided in the last couple of hours that I want out.

    Everything seems to be happening out there, but nothing goes on in England.

    I feel really down.

    Not true... Many emigrate out to both countries for jobs that are in high demand.

    Maybe you're just having a bad day or slight depression.

    American media got to you eh? Don't worry they try to do that to make other countries think the States is paradise when in reality it really isn't.

    Ahh cheer up it's not that bad. One thing for sure is North American chocolate will never in a lifetime beat chocolate/sweets from the UK, that's one of the things I miss from the UK. If you think about it thoroughly the difference between the States and UK there really is not that much of a difference. Well maybe the healthcare and large difference in gun crime, a college in Oakland California had a shooting just a few days ago... Consider yourself lucky.

    I heard Compton, California is a lovely place, if you're really interested in moving to the US.

    Detroit is also a wonderful place to really start a family & raise children, if you'd prefer milder weather.

    Just curious, have your been to canada or america before? If you havent then go there first because I highly doubt its anything like what we see on TV. Also I hate Americas healthcare and education system for a variety of reasons. Canada seems great but too cold at times, even at vancouver? lol

    There are many ways of emigrating. The most popular ways are either by spouse or job demand though.

    Said best by old Sammy Johnson, aye.

    I could understand fancying Canada, but the US? Beastly place, it is. You're better off moving to Pontefract.

    With Canada the weather is very similar compared to the UK but America since it's such a large country it has different types of climates. Miami for instance always has a temperature of 20c+ and it's very rare to go below that mark. Cities such as New York & Boston over the past few years seem to have an average temperature of around 18C+.

    Only difference I see with America is the winters seem to be much shorter and their summers and mild temperatures seem to last much longer compared to the UK or Canada. However just because the States has great weather does not mean the quality of life is great also, the temperature plays only a really small part of it.

    One way is to move there for work and apply for permanent residence later on. You usually need to have a job offered to you before you apply for a work visa, and it helps to apply for a job where there's a higher labour demand as this will increase your chances of being let in. Having a degree will also help hugely.

    You can visit the American or Canadian immigration bureau websites for more information of the types of visa available and on particular immigration pathways.

    Or marry a North American!

    It's basically very hard to immigrate over.

    I don't under it. Every bugger can come over here, but we can't go over there.

    omg..Why?
    You know,there's a truth that loads of people are dying to move to the UK for a variety of reasons and I'm one of them.btw I'm from Asia.
    Among 4 popular countries for studying abroad (UK,Canada,US,Australia),I choose the UK because it is attractive! It has unique culture,royal atmosphere,stunning landscape and great universities.What's more,the teaching system,the environment,the living standard are way better than my country(that doesn't mean I don't love my motherland,you know,everyone wants better life!)Actually,I could afford fees in any countries during my study,and I could choose what exams I take (e.g. Alevels, SAT,or just IELTS+Foundation).Eventually, I chose the UK,as I am obsessed with anything British.

    Honestly,I did think about CAN,US and AUS. Well ,Canada is a bit cold imo, and I always think it has a sparse population.And when Canada crops up in my mind,I only remember Avril and Justin Bieber ,however its landscape is pretty beautiful !! For the US,I have to admit I love it,but I thought the undergraduate is only 3 yrs,and I wanna work and get into society ASAP so I didn't choose it.Plus,my parents think degrees in UK and US is better than Australia(no offense,just their opinions).

    I want to live in the UK for lots of reasons.a,it is located in Europe,so I could travel during spare time. b.safe c.welfare and so forth.
    Maybe you re in the prime of youth so you want a more exciting and dynamic life,I totally understand.But think about the future, statistics reveal that people living in the EU are happier than other places ,and it's universely accepted that Europe is a wonderful place to spend their lives.
    So, be happy with your life . But after all,these are my opinions,I also wish you good luck on moving to your ideal places.
