Be it beautiful games such as Horizon Zero Dawn or hyper stylised games such as Hades, this is your opportunity to learn to create your own 3D art within a game development environment. You'll get the most out of our course if you come with an interest in all kinds of games and art as you will explore, design, and create 3D art for multiple different purposes and areas. This programme is created with industry focused direction and allows you to work towards a specialism within the 3D game art field. Our course will equip you, like many of our successful graduates, for a role in the expanding games' industry. We're justly proud of the originality and quality of our students' work. By the end of your course, you should be playing a game you developed yourself - and hopefully following in the footsteps of the many UEL graduates now making their mark in the games' industry. You can also take this course with a foundation year (FY), which means it will take you four years to complete the course full-time.

For detailed information on entry requirements for our courses, please see the individual course pages. We consider a range of UK and worldwide qualifications at the appropriate level and also take relevant work experience into account when considering an application. Many courses have a Foundation Year option for those students whose qualifications do not meet the BA or BSc entry requirements. Applicants should have, or be working towards, grade C in GCSE English and Mathematics (or equivalent Level 2 qualification such as Functional Skills Level 2 in English and Mathematics or Key Skills Level 2 in Application of Number and Communication) Entry requirements are intended only as a guide for applicants. They are not a guarantee of an offer, nor of the conditions that may apply. When making a decision on your academic suitability, we will make an assessment of you as an individual and will use information other than qualifications; which may include predicted grades, performance at Level 2, relevant work experience, previous study at degree level, personal statement, references and any portfolio, written test or interview, to make our decision. If you have any questions, please contact a member of our Applicant Relations Team from Monday to Friday (9am–5pm) on +44 (0) 20 8223 3333 or email [email protected]
The student satisfaction data is from students surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data – it is important to note your experience may be different from theirs. This data will be based on the subject area rather than the specific course. Read more about this data on the Discover Uni website.
