Anyone have any knowledge and experience with graduate programs in painting outside the U.S.?

How about Royal College of Art.

I know that you are seeking an MFA to teach. I got the hint from your four (4) posts!If you want to teach in the US, you should probably get a US MFA. If you want to teach elsewhere, it may not matter as much. If you do get a US MFA, go to US News and World Report Rating on Graduate Schools and check out your fine arts concentration. This will give you an indication of what US Schools think are the top programs. Thus, when they do hire people, going to a more reputable school will aid you in the hiring process. It also attracts students when the faculty have attended a Yale or RISD etc.

However, as I said in other posts, although getting an MFA may open some doors that wouldn't be available otherwise, simply getting an MFA won't automatically open up a teaching position. Many of these schools want to see established success and experience in the field. Be aware of this.
