I'm still learning 3d modeling animation on maya and zbrush and i will start soon learning houdini for vfx and i love it, now my problem is that i live in the middle east and there is no jobs for this field or even close to it and if u find one the payment is lower than working in mcDonalds.
So if i need to find job in the future when i have portfolio anywhere outside the middle east EU or US or canada, i need visa + degree.
Now my country have 1 school and it cost 50797.87$ USD for 1 year only.
My question is there any official university or diploma degree that i can i take online that will help me in the future to get jobs outside? bcs the only stuff i find online is small courses or 1 year course for one subject and i don't think this consider as degree... or do i accept the truth and study another major in my country like cs programming and forget about the 3D for good.
