Is it worth studying in the US?

    • Thread Starter

    I was wondering if studying Art Management and Photography would be a good idea in Chicago (Columbia College Chicago) as I need to pay quite a lot and I don't know if that would be worth it. Any suggestions? Do someone know unis related to these fields that may be cheaper and better? Do you think I'm doing the right choice? Thanks

    Not wanting to sound horrible, but studying in the US is usually a big financial commitment. And a degree such as you propose does't automatically lead to a well-paid career. Not that money should be the only consideration, but there do seem to be a lot of UK universities which offer these types of courses, with access to funding etc. Have you checked out the Fulbright Commission website? I'm sure you have.
