For a while I have been thinking that I'd like to go to Uni in America, I am just not sure how to go about it! I will say before I carry on that I am planning greatly ahead, I am 17 years old and have taken a gap year from High School - I am starting A levels in Psychology, Biology and Sociology in September. I don't have an exact career in mind but I am sure that I wan't to do something Mental Health related (Mental Health nurse or therapist). What I am wandering really is about funding, I can't afford to pay for Uni and I know that if I were to remain in the UK I could get funding, does anyone know if it would be possible for a British student to get funding to study is the US? I'd be really open to the idea of remaining there to work if it was possible for me and I enjoyed being there, but if I could not stay there for any reason, I am wandering if US qualifications are recognised in the UK.
I am going to talk to my college about this once I start but thought I would try and get some info as soon as possible as I have heard it can be a very complicated process!
Any info or personal experiences hugely appriciated!! xx
