From the latest RPG or massively multiplayer online game to mobile games or social media apps, there is a real demand for talented, technically able graduates who can turn ideas into reality.
From the fundamentals to advanced modules that cover game programming in detail, graduates of our 2-year programme emerge with highly marketable skills, which power one of the largest sectors of the creative media industries.
Our emphasis on hands-on training, allows you to work on various projects throughout your studies to learn the essential tools and techniques for games development. You are supported by tutors to guide your experimentation and creative output to ensure you develop skills that prepare you for success.
There is a shortage of programmers in the games industry - and the software industry generally - leaving graduates with a wide choice of career prospects. Crucially, you graduate with a portfolio to demonstrate your ability, which is vital in getting your first job as a games programmer.
Cost & Fees

2 Year Degree
As our degrees are only 2 years, you save a considerable amount on both tuition fees and living expenses when compared to a traditional 3-year degree. So, you can study and graduate with a much lower level of student debt!
As Tuition Fee loan funding does not cover the whole course fee, there is a small amount that you may need to pay through your own means. We understand this is not always easy, especially when you don't have an income, which is why we have developed payment plans to spread the small difference you need to pay. If you are not eligible for funding, we have payment plans for you too.
