** UPDATE **
There is a new section up on Sumea with a listing of all the places to study game development in Australia and New Zealand. You can click on the education link at the top of the page, or here. I am currently filling in the database with information - if I have left any out, please send me
At the moment, I'm only putting in entries where further information on game development courses can be directly found on the institutions website. A lot of the links below don't point to anything but the institutions main page, so they have not been added.
If you did go to any relevant game development courses, please post details/comments here, and I will add it to the list!
Oh, there's small rundown on local game-related courses at atomicmpc. Click here to read it!
