Unfortunately the design market is oversupplied. Many of my colleagues get hundreds of applications every week and even though there are some incredible designers out there, there is just no jobs for everyone and its very frustrating not being able to hire more guns. We get CV from award winning designers willing to work for free, seasoned designers with degrees or short courses with amazing work that eventually change careers.
Design education has become a last resort for many practitioners and it is an industry that is producing designers for the sake of it. Some of us calling it the "bubble of design", it is a reality that is hardly addressed in design forums.
My son wanted to study design and I encouraged him to pursue other path because the reality is that there are just no job prospects in this country. If I was you I would study the market a little bit further to make sure you take an informed decision before studying design.
