About Games Design at Sheffield Hallam University

Our MArt combines undergraduate and postgraduate study in a single course. It is informed by critical theory and research, and includes an industry placement or international exchange. You graduate with a masters degree at the end of four years' study. This means you have the advantage of the undergraduate fee repayment structure where you don't start paying back your fees until you are earning above a set limit. This is currently £15,000 a year. Normally you would pay postgraduate course fees when you enrol. As a games designer you combine and apply the traditional arts of graphic design, character animation and story development with fields such as 3D modelling, simulation and interactivity. Games design is about combining and using these creative practices to produce exciting products that are fun to play. It involves thinking of game ideas, creating prototypes and devising game elements that will feature in the finished product. This course is for people with artistic talents wanting to enter the games, graphics or multimedia industries. You can become involved in these creative areas and develop your knowledge of the industry. You * develop key skills such as visual communication, problem solving and career management * learn to use the latest software including 3D modelling packages, game engines and graphics tools * gain experience of developing game prototypes and graphics and animation sequences for industry standard platforms Games companies help deliver special sessions that focus on the latest developments in games design. They also give you insights into the games industry and career advice that only practising professionals can offer. We make sure you are employable after you graduate. As well as the skills and knowledge needed for a career in the games industry, you build a portfolio of work, which will be important to prove your talents to potential employers. All students attend a selection event with a portfolio of work to demonstrate their ability. Provided you meet our minimum entry requirements, we base our offer on your application, interview and work portfolio.
