About Games Art at Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Manchester Metropolitan University

Creating art for games is both specialised and rewarding - a mix of technical know-how and creative thinking that can make a huge impact on the look, feel and experience of any computer game. A game artist can create entire living and breathing virtual worlds, dynamic animated characters and beautiful atmospheric effects in one of the most challenging and exciting roles in the creative industry. Our BA (Hons) Games Art course offers this mix, with core skills and vital understanding that will equip you for your future career in the games industry.

While it's a specialist course offering a specialist skill set, being part of the School of Digital Arts offers the unique opportunity to work with others from across our broad creative community. By working in collaboration with students of photography, animation, sound design and more, as well as students from the Department of Computing and Mathematics, you'll get a taste of the kind of cross-disciplinary teamwork that's essential in the fast-moving digital sector. It's not only a creative environment, but a well-equipped one too. SODA has been purpose-built to develop industry-standard skills, so it offers industry-standard facilities - giving you every opportunity to get to grips with professional-grade development and design technology.

Just as SODA provides a vibrant, dynamic environment for studying games art, Manchester provides an exciting, creative setting. The city is not only home to one of the largest media and creative sectors outside of London, but also has a rich history of video games creation, from Ocean Software in the 1980's to TT Games and much more today. On our doorstep, you can find renowned CG, visual effects and VR/AR agencies like Flipbook and Carbon Digital, not to mention the BBC's entire digital and games teams. In short, it's much more than an exciting city for students, for qualified, well-rounded game artists, Manchester can provide the perfect launch pad for a rewarding career.

    Tze Yan Lim, BA (Hons) Photography

    Testimonial from Tze Yan Lim, BA (Hons) Photography, student at Faculty of Arts and Humanities

    "I chose to study this course because I am passionate about every aspect of photography and choosing this course enabled me to explore all the possibilities of it. I studied the syllabus of the course and it suited my needs, plus the University has great facilities and helpful technicians and professors.

    The thing I enjoy most about my course is that I get to experiment with different approaches to making a photograph and I am always encouraged to embrace failure when making work. The course has helped me to prepare for my future career by helping me place myself into the broader environment of art-making.”

    Isabella López García, BA (Hons) Fashion Buying and Merchandising

    Testimonial from Isabella López García, BA (Hons) Fashion Buying and Merchandising, student at Faculty of Arts and Humanities

    "Every year our tutors bring people from the industry from different backgrounds; entrepreneurs, managers, industry experts, which has helped me to see what I could do in the future, as well as being a great opportunity to network and be inspired!

    The thing I love the most about Manchester Metropolitan is the amount of effort that is put into student support, no matter the issue, there will be someone willing to help. The international welcome week and all the activities that were related to it were remarkably helpful. I got to meet many people that were experiencing things similar to me."
