This course is perfect if you play games and want to learn how to make them. If gaming is your thing and you dream of creating the next best-selling game and seeing your name on the credits, this is the course for you.

You’ll learn techniques that plug you straight into the industry from the design of a game through to app development, ranging from digital production techniques and creative disciplines, including:

  • Computer games platforms and technology

  • 3D modelling and animation

  • App development

  • Designing tests for computer games

  • Computer game engines

  • Programming

  • Concepts for artwork used in computer games

You can expect a course that offers a broad range of practical study, using great facilities with industry-standard equipment. You’ll complete various assessments throughout your study, resulting in a final industry-standard games showreel, and an end of year show where you’ll showcase your work professionally. You will complete 90 credits in Year 1 and gain a standalone qualification. On successful completion of this, you will progress into Year 2 to gain the full Extended Diploma.

You will be based at our City Hub campus for this course, we have open days throughout the year for students to come and view our facilities here as well as learn more about the courses themselves.
