Games Design (Foundation Entry)

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. You will love this course if you want to design the games you play - from the start you will be designing and developing games from design and animation to digital modelling. You will work on live projects from the games industry, working to real deadlines, getting the chance to express your own creative ideas and skills through your project work; all this using the latest games software in up-to-date facilities taught by professionals from the industry. Graduates of the course have recently gained successful employment in the following internationally recognised game development companies: Warner Brothers, Ninja Theory, Rare, Media Molecule,, Naughty Dog, Riot Games, Playdemic and several more. Students are encouraged to create their own games design companies, the most recent of which has been the successful founding of White Paper Games, whose game ‘Ether One’ was released on PC & PS4 gaining a meta-critic of 82.
