Hi all (hasn't this list been quiet?).
I have a question which I hope some of you can answer for me.
I've been out of University for about a year now and am wondering
where to go from here. I have been working for a large computer
company since last October and know that it is not the type of
work I want to do in the long term.
This is where I could use your help. I have always had a hankering
to study in the States, and what I would love to study is Film
and Television/Telecommunications or something similar. So, my first
question is: What is available along these lines, and where?
Secondly (and perhaps more importantly), I do not have a rich
benefactor so I also need to know what sort of sponsorships,
scholarships, etc, are available for overseas students wishing to
study in the US.
I should have said that my preference would be some kind of post-graduate
course (do you call them graduate courses over there), and that my
degree was B.Sc (Honours) in Mathematical Science from Strathclyde
University (Scotland). I am a born Scot and my nationality is British.
Any information you can give me will be greatly appreciated. My e-mail
address is

I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanx in advance,
