Games Design

The programme provides a unique study opportunity rooted in creative development linked across a range of digital and traditional approaches. The course also provides a distinct opportunity to study these disciplines at postgraduate level from a perspective that is not always readily available within the UK. Our postgraduate degree is for those individuals who wish to creatively question 'industry norms' and develop a personal area of investigation. To this end the course has a strong emphasis on personal exploration which it is hoped will bring together new ideas and theories within accepted common practice.

Entry requirements

Either a 2.2 degree or higher; a high level of achievement in undergraduate studies at a university elsewhere (e.g. for North American students a minimum overall GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale); professional experience in the field or a related field in their home country; international students are required to show competence in written and spoken English in addition to meeting the course entry requirements: IELTS minimum 6.5.

Course modules

Modules Include: Games design practice 1; research for creative design practice 1; design practice 2 (placement/field study); research for creative design practice 2/3; games design practice 3; project or dissertation.

Assessment methods

Assessment strategy and criteria is the result of collaboration between student and staff. Successful completion of the full 9 modules leads to the award of MA. However, for students who do not wish to or are unable to complete the full course, there are intermediate exit awards at appropriate stages.
