Computer Games Development (Including Foundation Year)

If you do not have the right subjects or grades to enrol directly onto our BSc (Hons) Computer Games Development degree, this course offers an alternative route into degree study with an additional foundation year. This extra introductory year will give you the grounding you need to begin degree-level study. This Computer Games Development course offers a skill-set that will help you gain employment as a game programmer. You could find yourself at the heart of the game development process, from writing code, testing it and fixing bugs, to producing tools for other members of the team to use. Whether you’re interested in artificial intelligence, game physics or crossplatform graphics rendering, the computer games industry is a thriving sector that offers many opportunities to work with publishers, independent studios or middleware producers. Our Computer Games Development degree places an emphasis on programming for computer games, but it also prepares you for a career in software development, and is your first step towards a rewarding career in the creative industries. You will learn by doing, making use of high-performance computers and working individually and in teams to produce games to tight deadlines. You’ll work on real problems that will prepare you for employment, and develop key skills to support lifelong learning.
