Aus fags whats the best TAFE/ university in Melbourne?
i want to do digital media technologies or digital interactive games or something similar.
Where do you go or where are you going. im kinda stuck in finding a good place, i have looked at
i just dont know anymore.
where is the highest chance for a qtgf?
I've been to a few and honestly it's a much of a muchness, however my sister works in HR in the largest law firm in the country and according to her when employers in law look at unis on resumes in order of preference:
I'm currently at Deakin and like the campus and curriculim. Really depends on what you want to study, future aspirations, etc. There's really no strict best.
I don't want to be that guy confirming youtube comedian claims but fucking hell, it really is at least 60% Chinese now. I don't care what language you speak as this is an multicultural country but it's very alienating to be walking around campus for 10 minutes before you hear English.
What are you studying? are you on campus if so is it worth it? Im thinking of doing motion capture there. i went to the open day last year and was impressed with the whole campus. sorry for the questions im just trying to get as much info for everything. looking at websites dont really do it.
Creative Writing. Couldn't judge whether it's worth it or not because I've never done off campus study.
Like any arts degree I'd say ultimately the education you receive is wildly not worth it comparative to the fees charges but the learning environment and career contacts are the important thing and on campus you get the opportunity to make those.
Otherwise I have nothing more to offer really other than Deakin does have the highest level of student satisfaction in Australia by some study which was probably not very comprehensive, but I do like it there. Much more than RMIT. If RMIT wasn't right in the centre of the city it'd have nothing going for it from an arts perspective IMO.
The reason i dont want to go to RMIT is because its in the center of the city, rent would be way too much. im from a small town like 4 hours away so the train and tram transport is quite foreign for me so im looking at on campus/ walking distance.
If i go to deakin i will be going to the TAFE side or Deakin 'college' its called that really doesn't do too much for me as a course.
Dude, you don't have to live right nearby the campus. You can travel there via car or public transportation. I wouldn't let rent in the area close to the campus be the decisive factor in your choosing.
Just in case you have a learning disability it means there's a large gap between MU and the rest of the pack. That's not relative to the education you receive there, however. Just how certain snobby employers view them on your CV.
yeah, i knew MU was for smart people.
technicality i do have learning disability but is quite little now. just takes a while for things to stick in my head. hence going to tafe. my ATAR was like 37 thats including SEAS, but i was on some anti depressant which made things worse rather than better.
>my ATAR was like 37
For real? I got like 70 and I only did 4 subjects, substituting the other two with TAFE qualifications I got during High school.
Yeah, high school wasn't the best for me.
i dont know what it was. ive been out for 1 year now and feel better. im not sure what it was.
most other people in my year got around 65+ i think. i got one of the lowest.
I did an ICT thing here, by the time I left it fell apart.
Apparently they hired a teacher who lied about being a real teacher on her CV, ironically she was one of the better teachers.
Swinburne TAFE - Would not recommend.
TAFE is the way im heading anyway. my ATAR was shite like 37 or something. no uni wants a retard on campus. so i have to do a pathway into deakin. im just not sure what TAFE to go to.
im thinking either digital media technologies or digital interactive games. in the end i want to do animation motion capture at deakin.
Parkville Melbourne is said to be one of the best for math/sci
RMIT is probably the better uni for tech, one of my friends did games dev there, but if you are really thinking about doing something similar you need to think about the competitive job market, its going to be hard for you to find work as a game dev.
VU, only really good for sport / teaching
ACU, Med stuff
MIT, no idea
Monash, no idea
Swinburne uni(I do networking). I like Swinburne in some ways because of the IBL I mentioned earlier, and their smaller class sizes, but for game dev id go with RMIT.
Melbourne and Monash are the most prestigious and challenging univiersities. I went to Deakin Burwood and then transferred to Monash (for mathematics). Deakin is a lot easier but it has a more laid back feel. I don't know anything about digital media because why the fuck would you go to university for that
Those courses are a waste of money. They cost a fortune and literally teach you nothing you couldn't google in your own time. Biggest mistake of my life was signing on to one of those in Brisbane. Really, just torrent the programs and have fun in your own time. Making a career in gaming will be next to impossible. Don't make my mistakes.
If anyone is going to TAFE, look up traineeships on seek or whatever you use for the field you are looking to get into.
I should of done this from highschool, you get money, schooling and experience.
Do this senpai, you will regret not doing it if you dont.
its really the only pathway into deakin for what i really want to do, which is Animation and motion capture. Im not really into making games and stuff sense i already know alot of stuff from Lynda.com and youtube. Im just learning the very basics of C# for use in unity. making games would be more of a hobby. making it into a career is nearly impossible these days. with animation i want to head into film and TV or advertising im not really fussed either way.
ive got plenty of money from the job i have now like 29K-ish. i will need like government rent assist and student allowances for living. but thats a good idea worth looking into. thanks senpai.
i know this.
my parents are pushing me to do something.
no trades interest me. i have always loved animation, drawing and creating/ making up stories
its really the only thing that interests me. for a while now i have been thinking up ideas for a webcomic and designing stupid shirts from memes (kinda pathetic i know). those are what interests me so im hoping i can do something with that. id like film, tv or advertisement they all use animation so im hoping for a job in those areas. thanks for the concern though, senpai.
It doesnt really matter in Australia because the unis are held to such strict guidelines that they are basically the same. However employers may have an inclination towards 'prestigious' unis like melbourne or (to a lesser extent) monash. I go deakin burwood and its pretty nice but for your course I would say rmit or something because they are known for computery shit
