hmm full cinematography courses ? only aftrs in sydney offer one i think, but they also offer short courses which are more specialized, lighting classes.... in brisbane and melbourne.
i am doing my masters at bond uni, which just recently got a very nice super16 camera package, but they dont have a special cinematography degree either.

Check this site out. The school is APA International Film School. It is a two year film school in Sydney which I am currenty undertaking. The strength of the school in my opinion is the Cinematography program. You get heaps of set experience.

Dmuench, I live in Melbourne, do you know any names of lighting courses in Melbourne? I did a 2 week Summer School course VCA was running at the start of the year. Do you know if it is similar to that by any chance? Cheers.

AFTRS provides a fantastic and very intensive course with good resources and teachers: it has a good track record with Academy Award nominees too (AFTRS graduates nominated for the past 4 years, with some winners too!). THe full time course is for people with industry experience and/or a first degree, and leads to a MA. Entry is very competitive.

But it's a government funded school, so entry is quite fairly restricted to Australian residents.

APA (mentioned in another posting) is a smaller alternative in Sydney: its students and alumni (several on this list I think) certainly seem to think highly of it - you can't go past a recommendation like that.

You might want to look at the ACS website
