About the BA (Hons) Independent Game Design (Game Development) programme

The BA (Hons) Independent Game Design degree (validated by the University of Hull) is structured to offer two distinct, yet complimentary pathways – Games Art and Games Development – designed to maximise students’ potential employability while allowing them to play to their strengths. It also allows for natural cross-fertilisation between the two, allowing students to build up mutual networks and awareness of each other’s roles.

The Games Development pathway will focus on developing learner’s coding and engine manipulation skills.

The video game Industry and the creation and distribution of video games have changed beyond all recognition in the past five years. No longer is the route to employment solely through the behemoths that publish AAA games, costing millions to make and bring to market. With the viability of game creation tools now available to all through free licences for Unity, Unreal and others, there has not been a time since the inception of bedroom coders over thirty years ago where it has been easier to get into the industry.
