What is this thread for?
Welcome to the University of Technology Sydney general chat thread. ;D This thread is for anything UTS-related. If you have general questions, ask them here. If you don't know where to ask something, ask it here. If you want to vent about your day at uni, do it here. If you want to chat about your subjects, do it here. Basically, whatever you want - this is the place for it. 👌

Who can post here?
Anybody! Most will be current students at the university, but even if you're considering studying here, you're absolutely more than welcome to post! Providing different perspectives is incredibly valuable.

Just note that to ask a question or make a post, you will first need an ATAR Notes account. You probably already have one, but if you don't, it takes about four seconds to sign up - and it's completely free!

Perfect! Was looking for somewhere to ask this question hahaha.

Does anyone know how the UTS Communications: Media Arts and Production course compares to the AFTRS film course (Australian Film Television and Radio School for anyone that hasn't heard of it hahaha)?

I've been accepted into AFTRS, but its just soooo expensive and I can't get HECS (something else called FEE Help, if anyone has any experience with this as well that would be much appreciated!). Wondering if UTS, which is quite a bit cheaper, would still be of a similar quality? I know that AFTRS has quite a high percentage of students get jobs in the film industry straight away - is that the same with UTS???? If anyone has any insight, would be greatly appreciated :)
