In the US they call their uni, college and it's expensive. UK uni prices are cheaper even at 9k a year

Someone came and gave a talk about US unis at my DD's school and I remember him saying the fees could easily be in the region of $60,000 a year although he did also say that there are more opportunities of various grants and scholarships in the US than in the UK and so the actual figure you end up paying could be similar or even less than here.

I think that used to be the case but if you read the forums here and many say the grants and scholarships are being cut back due to the economic climate.

My daughter has recently returned from a 15 month stint in the Cultural Representative Programme. She worked in the Rose & Crown in Epcot.

She passed her interview and was put on the wait list. Unfortunately the wait list was only for a year & expired before she was given a date. She then had to go through the whole process with Yummy jobs again including interviews etc. This time she did actually get to Florida.

Only problem with this programme is that you mix mostly with other British people as you usually only meet Americans when serving them!

This whole process is not for the faint hearted so be prepared to work either in a shop or restaurant ( the choices of jobs in Disney) to make sure you've got the experience that Disney wants.

Another thought is to do what my daughter also did & that is to take an American studies degree which has a year in the US as part of the 4 years. Choose your uni carefully & you could be studying in the University of Florida in Coral Gables for the same cost as a year in a British uni!

Best of luck with what ever you choose.
