Of course, making the choice and actually being able to do it are miles apart. A friend of mine recently moved to England, but she had the supreme advantage of having a lovely English chap who she was getting married to. I've talked to an OISC-accredited advisor, and he's putting together some options for me, but this doesn't look like it will be easy. One option would be getting a master's degree at a Scottish uni and then taking advantage of the Fresh Talent scheme to work for a couple more years, hopefully wangling indefinite leave to remain at some point.
Anyway, just wanted to say hi. If anyone has pointers or words of encouragement, I'm all ears. :-)
