Thanks alot, I cannot be more greatful for the information you are bringing to me.

I am still awaiting the replies from the few whom I have emailed.
Meanwhile, I joined linkedin to get in touch with Patrick Woo, vfx consultant at cgprotege.He has worked at double negative singapore.

His bio brought me to Ngee Ann's 3 year diploma vfx course.

http://www.np.edu.sg/fms/courses/di...Pages/dvfx.aspx

He then did a diploma from cgprotege too.

Which one do you think is better?Ngee has detailed syllabus but cgprotege has industry ties that they claim, have special program to qualify for the jedi track, etc. etc.So if I can atleast get into the industry just by doing a 2 year course + extra course of jedi to qualify + jedi program itself, rather than 3 years course + jedi program, I can settle faster.Because I already spent 3 years for a degree in Psychology.

But to answer your question, I am still open to both degree and diploma programs.I wish to have all the options first and then pick up one.

To your questions:

- No, I am born and brought up in India.But have an aunt who is a PR there.But it doesn't matter I think.
- As I said, I am open to both degree and diploma programs.If someone from within the industry recommends any, I would give it a special preference.
- Jedi program is the best, but could you please ask them which course could make me eligible to qualify for the jedi program?Because I have to present a showreel to qualify and I can only do that if I have studied vfx prior.
- 2000 a month for 2 years not an issue.But what after that?What is the average one can expect?

Thanks alot once again for all the help you are doing.

Just an update:

I opted for the lovely and acclaimed MA Digital Effects degree course at Bournemouth University.I would like to thank artzolio for help and guidance in this thread.

I would like to tell that my application was successful and I received an interview call.Today was my interview and within 1.5 hours post the interview, I received the offer, which I immediately accepted.

I eagerly look forward!

Thank you once again to all those who posted in this thread to help me.It will go a long way.

Regards,
Kirat
