How difficult would it be to transfer to a North American university?

I'm half-way through my second semester at Winchester School of Art and I'm thinking about transferring. I'd really like to study in Canada or the US but I'm worried that it would be prohibitively expensive or horribly complicated to set up. Exactly how difficult would it be? Would I have to pay full tuition without any financial aid? Would the different education system cause a lot of problems? What other hurdles would I have to overcome?

What colleges offer a doctorate in comparative myth?

What schools other than Pacifica offer a Ph.D. program in comparative mythology? My Google-fu has failed me. I understand that certain institutions offer interdisciplinary studies that can be bent in the direction of mythology, as can certain programs in English. But I can't seem to find any that offer the richness of mythological courses found at Pacifica. Surely that isn't the only university out there!
