    To be honest I just want to know if I shouldn't get my hopes up right now. I'm going to discuss it with my tutor next week but I'm itching to research already.

    I'd love to study my masters in the US but I'm not sure if it's possible for me. I understand the application process and the other important parts, but I was wondering what my restrictions might be. In my first year my avg was 56 and this year it was 54, I'm hoping to graduate with at least a 2:1, even with those results. I understand it is difficult to get a scholarship too. I noticed they have scholarships for minorities but didn't see any for women in CS/Engineering. So I suppose my question is if I would find it difficult to find a scholarship or even a place in a university over there?

    I'm doing computer science right now, going into my third year at Southampton.

    The only way to find out is to apply. If you meet the entry requirements you should be fine but bear in mind it is very competitive and make sure you have backup options. Getting a scholarship too is very difficult so again make sure you have backup options if you get an unfunded offer.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
