Hello, I am an MBA graduate from India, currently working at a private company. I am single and I belong middle income group. I discovered my interest only after completion of my postgraduate degree. I am so much passionate towards astrophysics and astronomy. I am 27 years old now, and I am thinking of studying Astrophysics/Astronomy. I was a average student in maths, physics, chemistry when I had taken 12th grade. Now I am ready to start from the scratch to prepare for my course.I am exploring my options now. My location choices for study are US, UK or other European countries.I am planning to start my course on 2018. I am researching on this topic, and I would like to know few things on this. Am I allowed to study second undergraduate degree in astrophysics/astronomy in any good universities? If I am allowed what are the eligibility criteria? I am planning to write A level exams, so that I could secure good scores to get into top universities. Should I take SAT/ACT even if I finish A level exams to join in US universities? There is no financial support from my family to do my studies, I am planning either on scholarships or to take loans.. Do I have any chance of getting partial or full scholarship for my study? If the scholarships are not available, is it possible to take up a loan? Meanwhile I have to support myself during the years, and I am okay to live a simple life ( Just food, clothes and place to survive) so is it possible to get a part time job to afford my living expenses? If I get admission in any university, is it possible to cope up with the syllabus of astrophysics or astronomy as a non traditional student? I want to be a researcher in astrophysics. What would be my career after I finish the course? ( I am ready to go for Ph.d path) I read lots articles and updates on astrophysics and astronomy for years, I would clearly say that this is what my dream is, this is what gives purpose to my life. I don't have any guidance from anyone, and overseas consultants here have no idea on astrophysics courses. Please please please provide your suggestions, advice, comments, instructions on what are the measures I need to take up to join the course. I have to make some important decisions based upon the details you give. I am so much passionate about studying astrophysics, and I would like to make my dream come reality. Thanks a lot in advance and I look forward to receive your valuable response.
