i dont hate the uk, far from it. However, i'd much prefer to settle down in the US or canada. Though, after looking at ways to become a permanent resident, it seems borderline impossible. Seems like you need some insanely good job or to get married to the US citizen, both of which arent achievable for me. How the hell are these people from very poor countries immigrating to the USA

Work for a company with a US office, and come on an L1 visa. Fairly easy in tech.

What area do you/ will you work in? You need to have skills that the US wants, or lots of money to invest.

For getting to the US, CS would be better, but you must go with what you enjoy most, IMO.

Once you're in work, do well, and there will be opportunities. US companies often move stand-out employees. Good luck.

i like the nature and scenery in america and canada. You wont find huge forests and mountains here in the uk. im an adventurous person and while the uk certainly doesnt suck, i would probably be much happier in the US or canada. im also introverted and like lots of space too and the uk has too big of a population density for my liking
