Course Information

Why choose this course?

The next big game has your name on it

You dream of being a key player in the video game industry. You may want to work for companies like Epic Games, Nintendo or Sony. Perhaps you want to work on triple A games like Fortnite, Sea of Thieves and Assassin’s Creed, just like some of our graduates? You may not be sure yet where you want to end up, but one thing’s for certain. You love gaming. You crave adventure. Gaming allows you to escape to another realm. It’s a place where you can be different. Where you can connect with people just like you. Nothing else gives you the same rush. Your perspective of gaming has evolved beyond that of a user. Now you’re analysing your experience. You’re curiously creative and you have stories to tell. When you daydream it’s about scenarios, characters and environments that your fans will enjoy. Your sketch pad is full of playable worlds that you’ve created. Advancements in technology make this a growing industry with game developers in high demand. Now it’s your turn. The next level is within your grasp.

Study a world-famous degree

Described by The Rookies as an ‘innovative and enterprising university’ our students regularly achieve critical acclaim for their work. Four of our students have won The Rookies Game of the Year award. We’re No.1 in the world for Production Excellence in Game Design and Development (The Rookies 2020). At Herts, you’ll learn in a real-world studio environment. We’ll teach you to create concept art, model and texture within real-time restrictions. You’ll gain a thorough understanding of the production process. Our teaching combines passion with experience. We’ve worked as artists and game developers for years and have insights to share. We’ll help you to thrive in a demanding and exciting industry by giving you the artistic and technical skills you’ll need. The games industry’s own trade association, TIGA, rates the University of Hertfordshire as being the Best Educational Institution in the UK (2019). We have strong links to industry so you can benefit from real world briefs, guest speakers, work placements and knowledge of current trends.

Learn in a stimulating environment

You’ll have access to dedicated PC labs, kitted out with everything you need to bring your characters and environments to life. The Learning Resource Centre contains clones of our animation labs (software and hardware) so if you want to continue your animation studies late at night or during the weekend you can. Plus, you can use our motion capture suite, digital photography and filmmaking equipment to work on your projects.
