Next Step help :/
 
i know these sorts of threads get shunned alot but i really do need help and i dont know where else to turn.

i have just finished my cert 2 and 3 in game programming with AIE and am unsure on my next step

i have the choice out of the following

Advanced Diploma of Professional Game Development - Specialising in Software Development
http://www.aie.edu.au/courses/game_p..._pro_game.html

or

Bachelor of Information Technology - Games Design and Development (BIT-GDD)http://www.courses.mq.edu.au/2012/Un...atYouWillStudy

or


C10229v3 Bachelor of Science in Games Development

http://handbook.uts.edu.au/courses/c10229.html#F22

It is tough choice without knowing anything from the Universities. Have you tried to get in contact with ex-students from those places to get their thoughts? How many have found work (something you could ask the Universities?).

You need a CS degree. You don't need a "game degree."
