In addition to these topics you will also be given the opportunity to work with other programmers, designers and artists on our year-long Collaborative Project module to create an industry-standard combined portfolio piece to help propel you into the industry.

Finally, in the third semester, you have the option of embarking on a summer industry placement, to put the skills you have learned over the previous two semesters into action inside a professional game development company.
