    I'm hopefully going to study some sort of Equine course (BSc) in 2020 and I'm looking at 3 small colleges that offer HE/Undergraduate studies. (Sparsholt College, Hartpury College, Writtle University College, which I visited in Fall of 2017)

    Any other Americans? If so, why are you choosing/have chosen UK, what are some of your negative/positive experiences, and what's some advice? Also, any Brits have advice/experiences as well?

    Hey Dreaming,

    My name is Julia and I am an American student doing my Masters at Aston University. I study translation (honestly I am terrified of horses) so unfortunately I cannot help you regarding the course you want to pursue or the unis you have listed.

    I can tell you, though, what it is like being an American student in the UK. I am from New York State originally, so the weather is basically the same. There is a LOT less snow though, which I am thankful for. Also, British English has a lot of subtle differences from American English, so that can be a little confusing at first but trust me, you adjust pretty quickly.

    I chose to come over here because I wanted to live in a diverse city with many different people and go to a school that had a lot of diversity with really good opportunities following graduation. For me the cost is also about the same as what I would have paid for one year in the US. Definitely check with FAFSA though, as they have a list of universities all over the world that accept US financial aid.

    I know this is just a brief overview, but let me know if you have any other questions or if you want some more perspective from one American to another.

    Best,
    Julia
