Course summary

Whether it's the fun of Super Mario or the horror of Resident Evil that amaze you, this is your chance to convert your passion for playing games into knowledge about how to design them. You'll get the most out of our course if you come with an interest in all kinds of games as you will explore, design, and create games for multiple different purposes and areas. This programme is created with more industry focused direction and allow you to work towards specialism within the game design field by not only teaching you games design fundamentals but offering you optional modules to specialise. Our course will equip you, like many of our successful graduates, for a role in the expanding game 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 designed and 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.
