Mike- I should have expanded further - you've got to acknowledge teaching in there somehow, but you can't say that that is THE reason you want the degree. It's crazy BS, but that's what they want you to do. Your primary reason for wanting the degree, for the art school's sake, is to further your own art, and to push the envelope of capital-A Art in general. I looked into an MFA myself a couple years ago - things may have changed since then, but my take on it was that programs outside the US are even more traditional-process UN-friendly than programs here. A lot can change in four years, so do investigate, and please post the results of your investigation. I'd love to hear what's going on out there.
