Entry requirements

We normally require an honours degree of 2.2 or above in a games or computer science related discipline with a substantial software development component.

Applicants failing to meet this requirement may still be eligible for entry if they can demonstrate a strong personal portfolio of related works in an interview with a member of the course staff.

In order to complete your programme successfully, it is important to have a good command of English and be able to apply this in an academic environment. Therefore, if you are a non-UK applicant you will usually be required to provide certificated proof of English language competence before commencing your studies.
