The University of Northampton is relatively new to games education, but already it has attracted support from the likes of Crytek and Jagex.
The institution’s course in games programming (BSc/HND Computer Games Development) opened September 2012, and a new course in games art (BA Games Art) is due to begin this September.
“What makes these courses unique from other institutions is that they each have a joint element of group projects, where artists and programmers work together to make games, from the concept idea through to release,” subject leader Martyn Simmons explains.
“Team work is so important in this industry and this gives our students the opportunity to work with others with different skills sets.”
