I am desperate to find something to do starting January, as I am 20 years old, I feel like I am wasting precious time. I just dropped out of Graphic Design, and although I know exactly what I want to be doing in my career path, which is writing and illustrating children's books, and until then work in a publishing house, I still feel desperate to start my journey.

Oh, and I live in Brazil, so I'll be moving to the UK.

I am between studying Illustration or English lit, but the main question is this

I have found a program on English Lit BA, starting January 2019, at the University of Buckingham. It's a 2 year degree, and it was ranked 9th in the UK by The Guardian... I was certain this was the program for me, but then, I read somewhere that this ranking is ********. I also read that for Buckingham being a small town, you don't make important connections.

I am also worried if it's worth the costs, or if I should wait until September to start at another Uni. I can't find much about Buckingham, I am afraid that's not a good sign.

There's also a TEF Gold
The Sunday Times 2018 Top University Guide - Top for Teaching Quality
NSS National Student Survey 2018 for student satisfaction

Can anyone please please help me?

I have family who live near Buckingham - it is a small town but close to Milton Keynes, Oxford and Aylesbury. [Express buses go to these places] The advantage is its a two year degree and it is rated It is a Private university so does not offer a full range of degrees but the ones it does offer are good. If you have any questions I'll ask for you -

Hi! Thanks for answering. So, as I said, I was thinking about the English Literature 2-year program, and I want to know if the program is good and if they have a lot of students... Is it a good place to live?

I know some local students from good schools go there and they could choose any uni - the two year degree is attractive. From what I've seen Buckingham seems fine - it's a small town but there's plenty of more lively places nearby if that's what you want.
