Coventry University: Games Studio Development

Institution Coventry University View institution profile
Department School of Computing, Electronics and Maths
Study type Taught


This course has specifically been co-created with the games industry and incorporates input from industry collaborators to meet a clear demand for more appropriately skilled practitioners to join the industry.

The course covers the full extent of the games development process from initial story ideation to final product testing and you can expect to work in cross-functional teams to conceptualise, design, build, test and market playable games.

Why you should study this course

  • Experience the full production pipeline of games development end-to-end rather than focusing on one specific technical or creative element of the process, while deepening your specialist skills focus. You will be able to realise your existing skillset within the process of games development but also to see how it might be applied to other parts of the process, and how all the different elements of the production pipeline link together.

  • This holistic approach to real-world learning is particularly valuable as it is designed to enable you to become an agile practitioner, able to flex across a range of roles within small independent games studios as well as to become a skillset-specific practitioner in the very large games studios with an awareness of the wider workflow.

  • Access state-of-the-art facilities4 complemented by experimental immersive studios and digital and electronic hacklabs.

  • You will benefit from a strong academic base and the excellent links the University has with gaming companies in "Silicon Spa" - the concentration of games developers based near the university around Leamington Spa.

  • Mentorship from the industry as well as academic practitioners as it is delivered collaboratively in a studio model. This will build your professional experience and networks. You will also have access to working games studios through field trips and masterclasses.
