Turn your love for games into a career and become part of a thriving global gaming industry.

If your ambition is to make games, then this course, run 
in conjunction with creative industry leaders taught from our ACM London and Guildford Campuses, builds the skills you need to fulfil that dream and carve out a career in gaming.

Whether you want to be a programmer, a designer, an artist, or sound designer, you can put your knowledge into practice with your fellow students, supported by tutors who are working at the heart of the gaming industry.

You’ll make completed, publishable games, using an interdisciplinary approach that distinguishes this Game Development course from the rest. Supported by our world-class teaching faculty and Industry Link teams, you’ll gain exactly the type of experience needed for employment in the games industry or to start up your own independent game development studio.

Course Overview

Throughout the course, you’ll learn about the commerce, theory and design of digital games. As you progress and 
in true ACM style, project teamwork will be at the heart of your learning experience, as recommended by the creative industry. You’ll also be paired with an expert Mentor, who’ll offer a unique insight into the industry and help you build contacts.

All of the knowledge acquired along the way is complemented by the development of skills that are gained in your specialist area. There are four to choose from (art, audio, design or programming), given the diversity of the gaming industry.
