If you have the time and money, then going to school could be the perfect way for you to learn all the skills required to start your career as a web designer. Just like anything else, there are pros and cons to going back to school, which we will now cover.

If you have the time and money to be able to attend school full time, then this could be the easiest, most direct route into web design. If not, then you could always look at online courses, distance learning and even self-teaching.
There are plenty of resources on the internet for you to gain all the skills required for web design, without ever having to part with a single penny, however the lack of a formal qualification or degree, may hinder your chances of getting that job.
