Hi.. I was happy to see a positive reply from a uni this morning in which they gave me an offer of 280 point. Not bad!

Problem is... theyve changed me from Video Production to Film Studies & Creative Arts.... why would that be do you reckon? would they tell me why?

Tried looking at their website but there is no details of what this course entails... what would Creative Arts mean.. I was thinking Drama which I wouldnt mind but they also do a Film Studies & Drama course and so obviously they cant be the same thing. Nothing in my past exams or PS refers to ART...so...any ideas?

isnt that when they offer u an alternative course becoz the one u applied for wasnt available or u didnt get in for it?

why dont u go on their website and check their course index and look for the course u initially applied for, and the course theyve offered and see if theres any difference

Video production is very technical and requires a lot of physics knowledge. I studied a bit of it on my course last year and there was a lot of physics involved in the broadcasting techniques section.

Maybe that is why they have put you onto a different course.
