The global games industry is booming and was worth £80 billion in 2019. Interest is growing all of the time and there are an estimated 20 million gamers in the UK alone. With developments in technology in areas such as virtual and augmented reality, the opportunities to work in this exciting industry are only expected to increase in the years ahead.
The vast majority of the games and animations produced in Britain are done so by small and medium-sized businesses and students on this course work in such a professional environment by working on individual and group projects in comfortable class sizes. The whole ethos of the course is to develop individuals who can respond creatively to commercial challenges, and who are able to pitch and promote their ideas and work collaboratively to realise them.
