UK Doctoral Programmes

Hi! I too am looking into doing a doctorate in the UK but in the field of Education. My reason for wanting to go to the UK is that it has been a long time dream to live there as well as to get a doctorate so I thought -- why not combine my two dreams?! How is your search going? Maybe we can compare resources?

And while I won't say that they aren't legit, I will say that Education Management LLC is what we refer to as a Korporate Kollege (a business that owns and operates colleges). If you do a search on this forum you'll find some of the major problems with these schools.
Now, I'm not going to say you should run from them as the Art Institutes seem to be better run than many of the other Korporate Kolleges, but I would HIGHLY suggest you look into other less expensive options such as your local community college or university. Also if you don't have to stay in your location, look into one of the outstanding schools noted for their art departments
