Find a decent Computer Science degree in your country and work on some projects on the side to help build your portfolio. After you have finished, start applying to companies in your area or start looking to specialise and do a Masters.

I will stress this: Game Trade Schools like Full Sail or Digipen don't give you an advantage over a decent Computer Science degree in the eyes of most employers. In some cases it is even frowned upon for various reasons.
Gonna have to agree with this man. I didn't realize you were outside of the USA sorry. Though I would say that it helps you get ready for the industry.
