Is studying abroad really worth it?
I'm very interested in hearing other opinions about this; I personally have my heart set on Sheridan, but as I'm living in the UK, the complications that it would involve are a big worry.
Sheridan seems to be the perfect place for what I want to do, and the location is a huge appeal (aside from the idea of being so far away from home for such a long time), so being able to study there would be a dream come true. The main issue I see would be cost - I'm certainly not well-off, so I would likely struggle with fees even if I would be able to afford them at all, with the cost of living included.
So would it be more sensible to settle for somewhere closer to home?
Or should I go for what I really want and just figure out a way to make it work?
Obviously in the end this is completely my own decision, but I would appreciate some advice, especially if there are some of you who have been / are currently international students (anywhere, not just Sheridan of course). Or even what you personally would do in a similar situation.

Well I can tell you that in the future I want to do a Masters at SVA. It's in New York and I live in Toronto. My philosophy on it is, go for what I want and figure out how to do it later. If I have to save for two years to do it, then I'll do that. Now, the other thing is whether you really need what you want. That's a personal decision. By the way, I go to Sheridan and I can tell you that there's a few international students here. It's certainly harder; they pay much more plus accommodations. If there are no better schools closer to home and you have your heart set on it, though, it's entirely possible.
