I did an IT Degree at UTS for two years, before cracking the shits, dropping that and changing to a BA in Television Production at Wagga campus. Moved down to Wagga et all..... have loved it ever since and have no consideration to return to Sydney.
Now in saying that, I'm not sure how much harder it is to get into Communications, as from what I hear, it's a very sought after course like TV Production. However... you can only try. I ended up at CSU by accident ;-)
