Oh hell this is the greatest XD Freakin hilarious!
You know I might be doing your course next year, if i'm accepted. I am applying now, got the pre-selection papers and am to vtac thing. Have to sort out HECS and all that jazz, and theres a few others that I am going to apply for, but RMIT is the one I am aiming for.
It was too expensive, so I had to let it go. I'm torn between your course and 2 JMC ones, the associate degree or the bachelor of digital media and 3d animation. The JMC ones sound really really good, but the place doesnt feel like a school, more like they are trying to sell me something. I also need to know if it will be quicker to get a job straight after I finish the course there, or quicker once finishing the RMIT course. Because I'll have a huge HECS or Feehelp debt to deal with and I want to start paying it off asap. Knowing what you do about your course, do you get a lot of support jobwise, like after you finish? Did you want to just do animation when you finished or focus on something else?
Honestly I'm still not sure!
I really want to have my own online business where I can sell stuff I make, and maybe get other people to join my site to sell their stuff etc.
I have a few ideas I'm working on, this course is mostly just to learn what I need to be able to follow through, so I can actually make myself a website etc.
But yeah, there's HEAPS of job support at RMIT, I have no idea about any other places tho.
But yeah RMIT seems to have heaps of contacts and stuff and I'm told that it's really easy to find a job when you finish.
Of course it has a lot to do with your work, commitment etc, but yeah the job support is really good + RMIT has a good rep.
Shame about that other place, still maybe it's for the best.
No need to panic about the debt, you don't have to start paying it back until you're earning over a certain amount.
I hear some people never have to pay it back. *shrugs*
I have received your vibes and as such I am sufficiently tingly. I am currently vibrating across the room. Well that's good to hear about RMIT, I wasn't sure about the support. Never...pay it back, you say? Intriguing...
