Career in Particle Effects?

Hi guys/Gilrs. If I was to pursue this as a potential career, what would be the best way in going about it? I've seen people say there's no point in studying various aspects of visual effects and that it's best to focus on one aspect.

I have a few resources in starting off and learning the basics but I really want to be taught as well, would it be worth taking the Dynamic Effect 1, 2 and 3 courses as well as the visual effects animation course at Gnomon? That way I wouldn't be learning anything I wouldn't really need to be learning?

Also, just in terms of oponions or maybe from what you've heard, is this a good field to go into? I don't want to to be mega rich or anything I mainly just want to be doing something I have an interest in and be financially healthy. I'd be in the UK and I don't have a degree to my name so probably wouldn't be able to work in the US unfortunately, would this have a big effect on me finding work in this area?

Thanks for any info
