Games Design teaches you the key technical and creative skills needed to produce indie videogames for computer, mobile and console.
You’ll gain an in-depth knowledge of games-design tools (such as GameMaker Studio, Unreal Engine, and Ren'Py), design and development processes, aesthetics, and the relationships between industry, players and designers.
The foundation year will help you take your first step into higher education, broadening your industry knowledge and enabling you to progress to an undergraduate degree. It aims to help you develop a strong foundation of game design, alongside academic and transferable skills, to ensure you get the most out of your degree-level studies.
The course is taught in the Daphne Oram building, our exciting new Creative Arts facility, where you’ll have access to industry-standard software to produce a range of games.
