Transform your passion for gaming into a career by gaining the skills you will need to produce games and animations alongside studies in other creative and professional disciplines.
The ethos of this course is to develop individuals who can respond creatively to commercial challenges, and who are able to pitch and promote their ideas and work independently and collaboratively to realise them.
This means you will gain an understanding of the key theories and creative and technical skills underpinning the disciplines, explore the markets and ethical considerations relevant to your areas of professional interest, and produce your own games and animations.
Whether you want to develop your practice in mobile, PC, console, VR or multiplatform games production, or finesse your skills in animation, the vocational focus of this course can help you break into the sector you are interested in. As well as incorporating industry standards throughout, it is taught by active practitioners and visiting experts. You will also undertake a work placement relevant to your career plans.
The course is taught in dedicated rooms in UCW’s Knightstone Campus. You will also benefit from the new equipment, modern library and bright and spacious study spaces in our new University Centre in the Winter Gardens, also in the centre of Weston.
This course also offers a comprehensive itinerary of optional visits to studios and businesses in the games and animation industry, and games conventions in the UK and abroad. In recent years and at an additional expense, students have visited EGX in Birmingham and Gamescom in Cologne, for example.
