Have you got a passion for games? Would you like to take your development skills to the next level? The interactive media and games development industries are both rapidly expanding and increasing in use and popularity.

This course will provide you with a broad understanding and knowledge of game and interactive media design along with a range of technical and methodological skills necessary to analyse, design and implement the development of these media. Students often work on live client briefs, either through their own liaison with companies or through projects arranged by the College.
