Course content

Develop the skills and strong relationships with leaders in the UK digital games industry that will help you pursue a successful career in games.

As part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training Intelligent Games and Game Intelligence (IGGI) – a collaboration between Goldsmiths, the University of York, and the University of Essex – we are training the next generation of researchers, designers, developers and entrepreneurs in digital games.

It's a unique opportunity for you to undertake PhD research in collaboration with our 60 industrial games partners and world-leading academics.

The doctoral programme combines practical skills training with advanced teaching in cutting-edge research topics and the chance to contribute original research to a growing academic area.

There are 12 weeks of taught modules in the first year, covering:

  • Game design
  • Game development
  • Research skills

You'll also undertake two industrial placements during the programme. This will give you first-hand industrial experience that will influence your research projects.

You could decide to carry out leading-edge research in emerging areas that could include:

  • Embodied interaction
  • Intelligent games/Believable characters
  • Gamification
  • AI for game design

Visit the IGGI site for more information about these broad research areas.
