Games Development (Production)

The games industry is global and offers some of the most dynamic and exciting job opportunities. The industry is always looking for best eager young talent to create the next big franchise. If you’ve got what it takes, we can help you step up to the next level.

Perhaps you want to develop your art skills, or you’re looking to use your design talents to create immersive experiences for games. With such fast-moving industries, anything is possible. If you’re keen to make your mark, we could help you to get started on an incredible career.

Our courses combine the latest knowledge and thinking with real-world practicality to help you prepare for work. Technology and creativity are what it’s all about. We’ll give you the chance to take part in national competitions, live projects and Game Jams. You’ll also be able to come along and hear from some inspiring industry figures at our special guest lectures.

Our curses are geared to be practical, but you can increase your hands-on experience even more by taking a year-long placement. Perhaps you’ll work for one of the biggest developers. Or you could work at the University’s own Canalside Studios, producing your own original commercial games for a range of platforms. In fact, you could even set up your own business by taking an Enterprise Placement Year. The courses are designed with employ-ability in mind.


We are always proud of our students as they graduate and enter the industry. Here is a small example of some of our 2020 graduates and the roles they have gone in to.
