    Does Chris McGillion get any nicer?
    Yeh I sure do... do journo.
    I got in the early round last yr too haha.
    It's pretty good... i love it! You get quite a bit of practical opportunities which is good, considering you're only a first yr. You get to go on the radio and read/write a story in the last semester, for example plus other group work with writing news stories. The first year is basically an introduction, but its still a lot of fun and you learn a lot. Chris Mcgillion is actually pretty nice... he's bluntly honest, but still a genuine guy.... he's pretty funny when you get to know him... but still scary/intimidating. As long as your hardworking, he'll be nice. Its when people are lazy and don't commit that he gets pissed off. haha. They're not too hard on first years though.... I mean Chris and Kay Nankervis (who you will also have for some of your classes). All in all, its a good course. You have 1 news-related core subject, and three other electives. COM130 (media production and presentation) is without a doubt, the worst one... haha! You still learn a lot from it though.
    Hope my answer has helped

    Haha thanks! Great help!
    Yeah, I met Chris when I went for a tour there and after he attempted to freak the crap outta me and scare me away from Barthurst, he was really nice and told me he'd give me a recommendation.
    I'm very excited for Feb 22nd and starting it all!
    Anyone else staying in the Towers?

    I put down New Res as my first preference, and got in XD. I just got back from a tour of the uni, and I am so happy that I got into new res. It looks (and smells) so much... better than the rest.

    There is no ATAR cut-off.. however something 75+ is recommended along with a decent essay to be submitted and solid english results. I got into sports journalism with a 90ish atar and a band 5 in english - but the requirement is below that

    Just letting you know there's more than just having a decent atar and a good application essay. There's also work experience - that sets you apart from the rest of the cohort who apply because it shows you have initiative and interest in journalism! And I know it must have an influence, because I received early entry into Journalism in 09. So get some work experience to write down on your application!! But then again, if you are serious about journo you should already have some to put down so you shouldn't be worrying about it!

    Ps. No interview....unless you're from TAFE or something, I heard.

    hey! thanks my friend said their cousin did journalism and he had to have a dramatic audition for it? it didnt sound right, because i don't see why you'd need a full on audition. youre going for journalism, not for acting.

    work experience!! I'm so keen to do it i've asked around, and a lot of the tv stations and newspapers in my local city (newcastle) said they only reserve work experience for uni students.. Any tips?
    i am INCREDIBLY eager to do broadcast journalism, as I love television, and writing, and current affairs. And I know Charles Sturt is the best uni in the country for what i want to do.
    thanks
