Want to turn your passion for games into a career?

Our BSc (Hons) Games Design course offers a broad study of games, emphasising the technical, design and innovation aspects rather than
programming. Key topics include content production, games and level design, as well as platforms and technologies. Our dedicated games team will help you
develop skills in games analysis, usability and playability testing and understand the concepts underpinning games production and the business of computer games (for instance, sales and marketing). Team-based projects involving regular critique sessions are designed to help you develop
the high level of teamwork and communication skills vital in the games industry.
