    I’m currently in my third year of University, and I’m thinking about what I might like to do afterwards. One thought was the idea of potentially moving to America, and either carrying on my education or getting a job over there. I do already have an American passport seeing as I was born there, but I’m not totally about what would go into a move like this. On top of that, I’m not sure where would be good to study or get a job, or where might be a good place to live.

    Any advice?

    Does that mean you're a US citizen because you have a passport and were born there? I might be completely wrong, but couldn't you just move back there because it's your own country? You're "one of them" as it were, so shouldn't it be simple? Again, I don't know the legal stuff about this so I am genuinely curious about how it works.

    What are you currently studying? What kind of work do you want to do? You should do research into the different areas that offer the most opportunities into your field of work and then decide from there where you want to live. Do you have family over there?
