Digital Media (Game Art and Design) - Leeds Trinity University

Do you want to learn how to create virtual worlds for gaming? Digital media is one of the world's most rapidly evolving sectors. It has transformed the world and its societies, creating a wealth of exciting career opportunities for graduates with the right blend of creative, technical and critical skills. Leeds is home to one of the biggest gaming sectors in the UK. Investment from Creative England has supported emerging gaming companies in the Leeds city region, resulting in a growing number of businesses choosing Leeds as the base for their games studios. But in spite of this, there is a major skills gap in the Leeds gaming sector, so we've worked with employers to design and structure a degree that will help you to develop the skills they're looking for. ​We'll teach you how to design games using the latest methods and techniques implemented within the game industry, as well as related sectors such as 3D visualisation, 3D animation, and VFX for television and film. You'll learn how to create visually immersive games, combining and applying creative thinking and problem-solving skills. We'll keep you at the forefront of the latest market trends and technological developments in the gaming industry, preparing you for a successful career in the creative 3D industry. Although you'll specialise in Gaming, we'll also immerse you in the world of digital media exploring areas such as digital effects, animation and motion capture, 3D modelling, augmented reality and mobile apps. You'll experience the full lifecycle of digital media production – from idea generation and theory, to design and implementation. **Placement Opportunities** ​​We are one of only a few UK universities to build professional work placements into every degree. You'll complete two professional work placements, which will give you the chance to graduate with up to three months' professional work experience without having to take a sandwich year out. Employers from Leeds' thriving digital sector are strongly engaged at each level of the degree, helping you to develop the technical skills and knowledge of workplace practices that you need to be successful in the competitive digital sector. You'll complete two 12-week professional work placements during the first and second years of your degree, gaining invaluable the industry experience you need to get your first graduate job. **Graduate opportunities** Leeds has a thriving digital economy, with strong employer demand for digital media graduates. We'll help you to develop the technical and creative skills that will prepare you for a career in digital effects, gaming or virtual reality. You could work as a technical artist, graphic designer or 3D animator, and your skills will also be relevant to TV companies, film studios, independent publishers, online streaming services and games design companies.
