Study type Taught


Our MA Games Design covers both advanced theoretical and practical strands ensuring you are fully literate in areas such as complex gameplay design, project management, advanced mission design, gameplay implementation and the utilisation of advanced technologies such as Virtual Reality. You develop key transferable skills such as advanced presentation skills and are encouraged to creatively experiment with ways of conveying concepts and information.

You gain advanced practical skills required for complex mission design and implementation, as well as the ability to create advanced gameplay scenarios and professional design documents. You tackle complex game development scenarios and apply advanced game management techniques, ensuring projects are organised in a professional manner from pre-production, through production, delivery and project closure. You also have an opportunity to develop – in interdisciplinary teams – a small prototype using a contemporary game engine and a prototype utilising advanced virtual reality technologies in a fully equipped VR studio.

The final semester involves the master’s project and dissertation. This is a large 60 credit module where you can design and develop a large project based on research. It has been designed to allow you to further develop and display the advanced skills and knowledge you have acquired over the programme.
