So, as it turns out I get a semester of "unspecified" credit from my Diploma. That means I get a semester credited, but it doesn't count towards anything for the purposes of forming a major or what-not, and I therefore have to complete all the prerequisites toward any major I want to complete.

Luckily, for most areas of study, you only require one subject at first year to be eligible for a major. So, basically how it'll work is that I'll complete one semester of first year subjects and then, in semester 2, I will begin my second-year subjects. So, I should have my BA in 2.5 years instead of 3.

It's a semester more than it would have been at Vic Uni, but it's so worth it.

I haven't chosen my semester 2 subjects yet because what I do will be determined by what I decide to major in. One downer to this is that I'll have less time to decide on my majors, but since I already know I want to major in Creative Writing, it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

In the meantime I've got first-year subjects as placeholders in semester 2, and I do have the option to not take the semester's credit if I want to do a full first-year. Sif.

So, for semester 1 I am enrolled in the following:

Creative Writing: Ideas and Practice
Introduction to Hollywood & Art Cinema
Medieval Europe: Plague, War & Heresy
Science, Philosophy & History
Current Music: Tin Machine - Heaven's In Here

Actually, they've given me exactly what I want.

I don't want to go to University and not study the subject that I love, what would be the point? I don't want them to go "okay, you're most of the way through a writing major, just do two more writing subects and you're done". That, to me, would be heart-breaking.

I know that, to a lot of people, university is not an enjoyable thing and it's just a process they go through in order to have that piece of paper at the end. But, to me the actual learning is equally important.
