    Hi there,

    I was wondering if it is possible to drop out of an art school MFA after one year.
    You have to sign at the beginning that you are going to be able to afford tuition and living expenses for the whole duration of the course, which is two years.
    I have my funding for the whole first year, but actually I don´t know how to afford the second year. I really want to go, but I don't want to make debts to afford the second year.
    I figure that going for one year is better than not going at all. I´ve been accepted into the Slade and RCA for painting and have chosen to go to the RCA.

    Do you know anyone who has dropped out or considered?
    I´m just wondering if it will be legally persecuted if you drop out although you have signed up for two years.

    Best regards,

    have you looked into scholarships or anything like that ?
    or contacted the school directly as they may be able to help?
