What will I learn?

The Game Design programme introduces and equips students with artistic knowledge and technical skills that are related to game design. Students will explore the fundamentals starting from generating strong conceptual game arts, till the technical execution of building and running the game itself. The programme is structured to achieve the student’s potential development of concept, visual language, technical skills and personal expressions. Practical applications are strongly emphasised in the programme linking these with theory through critical reflection to build on work-related skills and academic knowledge. Students interested in gaming will have the opportunity to try their hands at designing their own games.
