Możliwości kariery
Is it your dream to work in the game industry? In our game programme, one of the best in the world, you learn how to make interesting, attractive and, above all, playable games.

In this programme you will be trained in creative, technological, and commercial skills. Game careers require you to have both a broad knowledge of game development and deep skills in your chosen area of expertise, such as 3D visual arts, high-end video game development, animation, audio, gameplay, level design, production, or programming.

 

Role based learning

 

The educational structure of this programme is Role Based Learning (RBL) and is based on Project Based Learning (PBL). This is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills in their chosen role by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, problem, or challenge. The focus is on facilitating students to become self-driven learners that can analyse a problem and use all the resources around them to find solutions. 

During your four years of study you will work in a simulated game development studio on different game projects. The majority of your time will be spent working on projects either individually or in groups, and attending workshops.  

When you first enter the programme, you choose one of the study paths. During the second year you can switch paths to become a ‘general developer’ with mixed skills, or you can stay in your specialisation for the remaining projects.

The first year you can opt for the following pathways: 

  • 3D Visual Arts

  • Programming

  • Design & Production
