Hi, I'm currently in the third and final year of my Bachelor's Degree in something totally unrelated to Graphic Design, in India. I don't want to do anything related to my Bachelors in the future and want to do something related to Graphic Design/Illustration after I graduate. I've always been into art and design since a child and I was seriously considering Graphic Design in school. I even got accepted at an Art School with a Foundation year but I chose to stay in India as I got into one of the best colleges in Liberal Arts here. Even now, I find myself doodling in class all the time, have big ideas in my head and volunteer for small college design stuff. I don't have much experience apart from art classes in school, winning a few small college level competitions and designing invites, posters etc for college events. I thoroughly enjoy design but lack any kind of formal training and don't know any technicalities related to Graphic Design. I simply use a cheap knockoff of Photoshop to design stuff, which I am really passionate about. People praise my work all the time and a number of people have told me to pursue design in the future. I feel like I have the potential but lack any proper education in Design. I absolutely don't want to study further in India as the Design scene here isn't too strong and want to learn GD from scratch. I researched a lot and found the following options, but am not sure if i'll be accepted for an MFA at my level, being only 20 years old. OPTIONS: 3 year MFA in Graphic Design (schools like RISD, CalArts, CCA) Post-Bacc at MICA 2 year MS in Communication Design at Pratt 2 year AAS in Graphic Design at Parsons 2 year AAS at Pratt where after the two year AAS, I can transfer to the 3rd year (Junior level) of the BFA in Comm Design) Second Bachelors in Graphic Design It would be amazing if I could get some advice about this as I am thinking about this all the time and really need some direction and clarity. Also, if someone could suggest a few schools in Europe, UK etc, it would be great! As of now, whatever schools I researched about in Europe/UK, they require a lot of experience to apply at the Masters Level.
