This course is offered as a four year programme, including an initial Foundation Year. You may also be interested in our three year BSc (Hons) Games Development course.
The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.
During your first year, we will help you identify what employers are looking for from their future recruits, including practical and transferrable skills, personal qualities and business awareness. This new knowledge will lay an excellent foundation for you when you graduate, enabling you to present yourself effectively to employers using a CV, application form and during interviews.
We will also encourage you to develop your entrepreneurial skills. We'll show you how to formulate a plan for a new idea or product, showing who your customers are and how their needs will be met. You' ll also learn how to pitch your ideas in a range of ways.
Other modules in the Foundation Year include Computing Essentials, covering web design and mobile apps, networking and programming, and also Digital Media which will give you the basic processing skills needed to manage content such as images, animations and audio.
The BSc (Hons) Games Development focuses on how to program games, from traditional software design and coding to the latest techniques employed within graphics and AI. The course also provides an insight into other disciplines within the industry (design, modelling, animation and business), to ensure you can appreciate the roles of others within a diverse team.
