Roadrashan - English literature encompasses any literature written in the English language (Oiky Gove take note) so there's no reason why you couldn't study it in the States. The HE market is just that these days - a market. You have a choice between £9k pa over here, or more (or less) abroad. I you have the readies you'll go where the course suits you.

YDD - she came from a priveleged background but she is a millionaire in her own right through hard work and talent; I suspect she paid her own way.
