Course content

This innovative course has been developed to provide students the opportunity, support and guidance to fully explore the activity of designing and developing games of all types. The course team is a rich mix of staff with current industry experience as well as practiced academic staff with significant postgraduate delivery experience. The course seeks to encourage the inquiry into generally accepted game design practice and strive to push the boundaries of what is achievable in this young discipline. Students are engaged through a wide ranging programme of stimulating lectures and tutorials to develop their knowledge and skill in the design of games. The course is delivered entirely via the Internet using readily available online tools and proprietary applications. The course is completely distance learning and there is no requirement for on-campus attendance.
