Hey man i'm from the UK and to be honest australia has much better weather i know where id want to study!
In all seriousness though im not sure if there really is an ultimate games course here in the UK universites here tend to be fairly accedemic as opposed to job focused . That said Bournemouth university is very very well respected here that would be my target for the UK but im no expert on it.
Indeed have you considered the USA?. Gnomon have a very good program. Also art center is world renowned.
Edit. Just noticed you have a computer science degree. In that case i would Highly reccomend bournmouth university. Many of the profs are pioneers in CGI (when i applied anyway) and they have a habit of getting out TDs I didnt get in when i tried due to failing at the maths and logic tests they had. If your technically focused with an artistic flair go there for sure. 100% they are number one at that field

His username is conBom :P
Anyway, I believe Bournemouth is more focused on visual effects than games. Although I could be very wrong, the information on their website kind of reinforced that belief.
Keep in mind that it is not that easy to get in there. Your test scores will come under scrutiny and you will have to submit a portfolio of your previous work etc.
Good luck :)
