    I've been to the US on holiday in the past, and everytime I've been I've loved it a ridiculous amount. I've always wanted to be able to move there in the future. I'm just wondering how hard it is to actually move there? I know they want to know what you can offer to them etc. and I'm planning on going to Uni and doing a degree/PhD in physics, and want to be a teacher eventually. Would they be interested in that what so ever? Also, how difficult is it cost wise? Do you have to save up a lot of money to be able to move there? How hard is it to get a visa?

    I've not a clue how to do it to be honest, and I've a lot of questions with no answers to! If anybody could give me some answers/advice, I'd be very grateful

    I've even thought about applying to American universities. Is this worth doing? Or is it too difficult?

    Thanks,
    Charlie

    Very difficult. Trust me, I'm trying to too.

    Green cards aren't available to UK citizens. I think if you're from Northern Ireland though it's a different story.

    For teaching, unless you work for a British international school it is again very difficult. Each states have different regulations for teaching and different exams/qualifications needed.

    If you are yet to apply for university, look into the fulbright initiative and that should help you start off - especially if you'd like to do a degree at an American university (beware of the cost though).

    Message me if you want links to some sites or want to chat about this... Done a lot of research myself.

    Trust me, living there and visiting there are two entirely different experiences.
