Ok let me start by saying as far as I know I am the only student that has started and passed both game courses at the AIE and Qantm. With this I belive I am the only one that can truly comment on which is a better insitution. Let me start with Qantm first
I Started attending Qantm in 2000 in around August. We had a rushed programming course to the end of the year at the BIT. We resummed in January after a month our teachers quit and for 3 months we didnt even have any. We got teachers and things greatly improved.
Question for current Qantm students have situations improved or do you still experiance set back like rushed courses and lack of "teacher" skills?
As for the AIE. For day one I could tell it was a more professional setup. It is run like a school and not a tafe which makes a big difference. The Teachers are teacher not people that happen to know max or how to paint pretty. One big advantage is you dont have to learn both programming and art side (When I was at Qantm you had to dont know if this has changed). Instead of breaking uo into small groups *3 or four ppl, like at qantm) you work as a class as a team.
Thats said with what Ive seen coming out of Qantm this year I belive they have got their "shite" together.
Can I get some feedback from you Qantm ppl what change it the last 3 years there?
I hold alot of dark feelings for Qantm and how it was run as when I was there is was a blood sucking leech!
