Games Enterprise

The programme is an innovative new course that will give you the opportunity to develop design, production and enterprise skills. It builds upon the existing successful teaching at undergraduate degree level within this subject area that has produced award-winning game developers, SMEs, artists and designers. The course is aimed at those who wish to expand their existing skills and develop their practice within an environment that functions as a small development company, but who also wishes to tailor their learning to their own specialism. Using proven industry simulation techniques and collaborative practices, this course emulates team-based activity as used within the industry. As part of the course you will develop a game project that has robust documentation, detailed business strategy and, of course, a game to be proud of.
