Our BA (Hons) Computer Games Design course allows you to apply your skill and creativity within the computer games industry – a sector which is growing at a record pace. According to TIGA, the UK video games industry is the largest in Europe and contributed £1.11 billion to the UK economy in 2014. From our Rochester campus, you’ll be able to get to London easily to explore this constantly-evolving industry in person.
Through this course we particularly value an entrepreneurial indie attitude, aiming to challenge convention and help form the future of gaming.
Learning from experienced lecturers with strong links to the industry, you’ll be able to apply your skills beyond just creating entertainment and explore other areas such as avant-garde games and games with a purpose.
Students on our BA (Hons) Computer Games Design course take a broad approach and often incorporate games technology and design into other related disciplines.
You’ll be part of a creative community with strong external networks, but there will be a focus on your own individual approach to game design as you develop a broad range of skills that underpin your chosen area of specialism.
Our Rochester campus has excellent facilities dedicated to computer games with high-end PCs running software including Unity, CGI Autodesk Entertainment suite and Adobe Master Collection.
The course also has access to shared resources including 3D workshops and laser-cutting, as well as photography and printmaking.
There are fantastic career opportunities for graduates of Games Design, with the option to develop entrepreneurially into fields beyond the entertainment sector.
Please note for 2019 entry this course has changed name to BA (Hons) Games Design.
