Alright, so I'm a Canadian citizen, always have been. I'm applying to American schools for drama because I ultimately want to get out of Canada and I think there are more opportunities in the States. However, unless I get substantial financial aid from American universities, I'm staying in Canada. Here's where it gets interesting.
I know that that there are plenty of conservatories and schools in the UK that are quite affordable for EU students, but I had always dismissed it as financially impossible for me as Canadian. However, I recently had someone point out that it wouldn't be hard for me to get a Greek/Canadian dual citizenship, since I have lots of Greek relatives (there's more of a story, but just believe me, it's possible). This would make UK schools quite a viable option, not to mention VERY appealing, since I'm kind of dying to get out of Canada.
I searched this forum but didn't find much in detail. Essentially, I'm wondering what the best schools are in the UK, especially in and around London? I've looked into RADA but they only accept students 18+ and I skipped a grade so I'll only be 17. I also researched the Central School of Speech and Drama, which seemed appealing. Does anyone have any experience/suggestions for me? What would you do if you were in my situation?
