Our newly developed BSc (Hons) Games Design degree focuses on the design aspect of creating contemporary video games; exploring everything from the theory behind the creation of successful digital entertainment titles to the generation of dedicated art and content for them.
Currently being considered for accreditation by The Independent Games Developers’ Association (TIGA), the course covers level design, interactive storytelling, narrative development, interface design, games analytics, scripting for game creation, plus 3D modelling and texturing for games. The degree follows a curriculum that is intended for specialising exclusively in the art and design aspects of video games creation.

If you choose the three-year course option, you can also complete an optional 4-week placement.
