What will I learn?

Combine creative flair and technical skill on the MA Games Masters degree course at the UK’s Best Educational Institution (2017 TIGA Games Industry Awards).

As a postgraduate student at NUA you’ll collaborate with likeminded peers and be guided by subject specialist staff. You’ll enjoy interdisciplinary sessions with students from across our range of MA courses as you work towards your ambition of a career in the games industry or wider creative sector.

Refine your industry-ready skillset

Ensuring you graduate ready to meet the demands of a rapidly-evolving industry, this course will accelerate the development of your games design skillset.

Alongside broader research into the social, technical, economic and cultural context in which games are produced, you’ll specialise in one of three areas, following a clearly-defined path of study in Concept Art (and Sequential Narrative), Asset Production or Indie Development.

Blend theory, practice and creativity

Whatever your choice, your creativity will be informed by theoretical, cultural and historical research – and powered by cutting-edge technology and software.
