Course content

Video games continue to be big business, and the demand for 'Hollywood' quality soundtracks to match the increasingly impressive visuals in games has never been greater. If you are a sound designer or composer, this course will enable you to explore the opportunities that interactive games present.

Your course has been designed by a teaching team with extensive professional experience and links to the games industry, ensuring your studies will reflect the latest developments in games audio. You will gain up-to-date skills in sound design and interactive composition, and you will explore the importance of music and sound in other media.

You will have access to a suite of high-quality professional music studios, and you will develop your expertise using real-world game engines, middleware and prototyping tools to implement sound and music into games.
