Exclamation Crunch time is coming

So my life in high school is ending soon...
and I have to decide what the hell I'm going to do with my life. I'm really interested in the 3d field. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any good Universities or programs in Canada (They'd be subsidized for me) that can offer me what I want (that being 3d stuff). I guess any program anywhere (US or Europe) would be good, as long as it is reasonably priced. So any suggestions are much appreciated.

I left at 16, two years ago. I'm now in my second and final year at college studying multimedia. Then i'm off to another college to do traditional animation, than maybe another for some kinda art, maybe a drawing class (anyone know of any in London), and then finally off to uni for an animation & visulisation degree

I have it all planed out
