So I was born in Poland and I moved to England 11 years ago. I am currently in first year of college and have the joy of looking at unis.

The thing is that I don’t want to stay in the Uk. I hate this country with a passion, and I want to leave it behind as soon as I can.

I’ve been looking at the US and Australia and Europe and so on for a BA in Graphic design.

My question is how do I go about applying for Australia as it’s the most appealing. What about the fees and is there finance available? What if I have to find my own accommodation? How do I afford it all?

Also I have a polish passport but English school certificates, does that mean I am an eu student or not after brexit?

If you have any experience studying abroad please share! I need help •_•

First of all, ask yourself WHY you dislike the UK?

I am an American who moved to the UK for my undergrad degree because I absolutely could not stand the U.S.... Politics and the redneck culture taking over being the #1 reasons. I love it here cause most people have the same personality as me, and it's in Europe so its near all these amazing countries.

Honestly, I have no clue about studying in Australia. But in terms of affording, you might have to take out a loan and just bust your butt to pay off everything. Make sure you are not making an impulsive decision that will leave you financially crippled and under so much stress.

Anglia jest do dupy. Mam dosyć tych ludzi i tej pogody. Patrzę kurwa wszędzie jak naj dalej stąd.

Najgorsze to że to wszystko tyle kosztuje a ja kurwa nie śpię na kasie, przynajmniej nie na 50 000.

You sound a little stressed... I will say the weather isn't the best and the current prime minister is a girl version of Trump (unfortunately), but...

The UK has so much history. The people here tend to be very blunt so it can come across as mean, but its just the social culture, nothing that should come to you personally. University is going to be sooo much better! 1. You will be away from home, so you have freedom to be who you want to be and do what you want to do! 2. You'll meet new people who are just like you, and you can have study abroad opportunities (you can go study abroad in Australia or the U.S for a year through your uni... it's cheaper and more secure overall). And if you find you like it, then do your postgraduate abroad!

As an American, I will say the U.S. school system is horrible. You have no educational freedom and the fees are unbelievably expensive. My INTERNATIONAL UK tuition is cheaper than if I stayed in the states as a resident! Also, over there its 4 years university, not 3 like the UK.

Also, I wouldn't recommend Australia. The only thing they really have there is beaches... and annoying accents :lol: I haven't heard anything about the universities there being the best. There's a reason the UK is known for having amazing universities... (aka Russell Groups).

Have you considered moving back to Poland and studying there? If you can speak and write fluently, I'm sure you will be successful there.

If you have any further questions about the American system, feel free to ask me.

ludzie są najgorsi, strasznie denerwujący i bez szacunku. Walia jest jeszcze gorsza (jeszli to jest możliwe)
