Overview

Building upon classical art training, creative problem solving and ideas generation, this one-year course will help you develop a set of core skills that underpin a specialisation of your choice.

You’ll get to work in a variety of media, experiencing both 2D and 3D tools. This will help you produce products to industry formats and standards. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop production skills that diversify your portfolio and broaden your career prospects. This is achieved by choosing specialised optional modules. These are then combined with the core project modules to help turn you into a multi-skilled, well rounded and highly creative graduate who can quickly adapt to the creative workplace.

Dedicated studio spaces and exposure to a high-end suite of industry tools, software and techniques – together with tutoring from industry experienced staff – will help you identify and hone your skills. You’ll also be supported in developing your game production, business and entrepreneurial skills, as well as working with coders and artists in the Video Games Academy.

The course team has a continued commitment to industry engagement, sourcing real world briefs and clients to help students graduate with not only a solid theoretical understanding of the field, but also with practical, tested and industry relevant experience. This will help build a creative and professional edge over your peers, as well as a solid portfolio of diverse works to aid in securing employment.
