What will I learn?

**Course Overview**- Channel your love of computer games into your dream career starting with our Foundation Entry degree in Computer Games Development. It will prepare you to work as part of a multi-skilled team, producing high quality, innovative and exciting games to tight deadlines.- Foundation Entry degree courses are ideal if you’ve got the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly join an honours programme. It’s a great stepping stone to a full degree.- We offer a three-year BSc (Hons) degree as well as a four-year MComp (Hons) degree, with an optional additional sandwich year in industry. Both degrees emphasise software development for computer games, brilliant preparation for any career in software engineering.**Why study with us**- You’ll learn by doing, using the high-performance kit in our purpose-built Games Laboratory and the University's general computer rooms.- Where possible, we make software available for use on your own PC so you can develop your own games.- Our laboratories allow you to use specialist software and to do things that wouldn’t be allowed on the public network (such as configuring networks, exploring computer viruses or testing system security).**Further Information**- MComp (Hons) Computer Games Development incorporates the three years of the BSc (Hons) Computer Games Development degree. If you begin study on the MComp degree then you can subsequently choose to just do the first three years of the course and receive the BSc level award.You’ll develop expertise in programming using C++, maths and problem solving - qualities that games companies want from graduates, but which are equally sought after in the wider software development industry.
