I have a degree in a science-based subject (nursing with a first-class) and I would like to study for a second degree in Fashion Design. It is something I've always wanted to study; however, due to personal circumstances it's not been possible (childcare, mortgage). I'm 26 and I would like to know my options. I have been told I would not qualify for a master's as my current degree is not appropriate for admission. I do not have a-levels in art so I may have to go back to college. Furthermore, I am aware of the tuition fees for a second degree and I understand that I would have to take out a loan.
I feel that life is too short to not do what you love!
...or just paranoid?
