    Hey fellowship of dnbforum.

    So, monday is school and this is my last year in high school. Got my mind on the future kinda........the unknowness of it is kinda inspirational to write a track about it even lol :D
    To the point then, i've delved into production for months now and i'm really captivated by it and thought about going to learn sound design abroad in a foreign country.

    Could anyone advise a school in EU which is good at teaching sound design, cuz i checked the estonian schools and they lack the depth in it....googled a bit and found HKU in NL and it is taught in dutch so yea, i would love to learn in english..

    Anyone got some ideas?

    I checked the Bath spa university, seems a really good school, but the tuition fee reached ~10k £ and that is a lot:D

    I checked SAE and it is the most appealin' one, but still the tuition fee reaches a pretty high amount, but yes, I will consider SAE:D

    It's a private institute?

    the SAE's tuition fee is pretty high, but it seems the most proficient sound design school :D

    SAE is a bloody waste of time. a fun fun beautiful 3 year multi million euro debt waste of time.

    unless your the shit, granted. if your the shit then ok. chances are youre not though, or, your are, but nobody will ever know. point is dont make a career out of a hobby unless youre ready for freddy and willing and able to sell your soul to the devil.

    the devil being commercial music industry.

    although if you've got the financial backing to waste a couple of years on it i'd say go for it.

    yeah dude totally if there is money, three years worth of horrible horrible funny money, which its insane to think someone would have, but people do, somehow, then do it.

    honestly mate youre better off getting a call center job in amsterdam and a computer with fruityloops in your spare time. just ask my man tommy, or hans or billy. were all living the dream. call center and flp. thats the life equivalent of krokodil basically
