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

If working out the rules, systems, puzzles and challenges that shape a player’s experience
in a game is what you get excited about, then Game Development: Design is for you.

You’ll graduate having had extensive experience as a game designer from paper concept to the finished article, with a portfolio of completed games on which you have worked closely with all the other development team disciplines.

No specific subject area is required for this specialism in terms of previous qualifications, but a good, passionate understanding of games and the ability to understand and interpret software is advantageous.
