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

Games design offers a route into a form of entertainment that's not only one of the world's most popular but is also constantly evolving, innovating and redefining its own boundaries. In short, the games industry is an exciting place to be and our BSc (Hons) Games Design course can offer your route into it.

Throughout the course, you'll find an activity-led approach focused on the practical processes of making games. So, with our support you'll build up a strong portfolio of games and game-like artefacts. As you progress, you'll have the chance to pursue the specialist areas of the discipline that interest you most, and with cutting-edge assessments like our 'Game a Week', you'll also build up your abilities as a games designer. Then, in your final year, you'll not only work solo on your own game, but also work on a large-scale game through a series of smaller projects within a simulated game studio.

The School of Digital Arts offers the perfect setting for that kind of collaboration. That's because our innovative curriculum paves the way for the same cross-disciplinary teamwork you'll find in the professional digital sector - by working with students in sound design, animation and media production as well as students from our Department of Computing and Mathematics. The result is an environment that fosters creativity and helps you build a varied, well-rounded skillset. And, because SODA is purpose built with industry-standard facilities, you'll leave us equipped with industry-standard technical skills too.

As a Games Design student, you'll find Manchester offers both the perfect backdrop for your studies and an ideal launching pad for your professional ambitions. It's not only home to a rich heritage of games publishing, but today has the largest media and creative sector outside London. On our doorstep, you'll find a globally recognised web and UX sector, as well as renowned CG, visual effects and VR/AR agencies and at MediaCityUK in Salford, the BBC's digital and games teams. All in all, it provides a range of opportunities for a graduate ready to make a statement in the world of games development.

    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."
