Games Design as an academic subject is a new idea to many parents, and some students too. On our courses you will have a core first year where you will cover all the basic skills needed to make and understand games. This will cover the creation of rules, art, software use, communication, writing and much more.
In the second and third year students have the choice to focus on Design, Art, Technology or Game Studies. By the end of the course graduates will have a range of skills sought after by the games industry for roles including game design, game production, game art, game development, game analysis and game research, as well as transferable skills relevant to broader fields.
Our Games Design students and academics have uploaded some videos on our Brunel University YouTube channel to explain what is studied on our Games Design courses and what life is like as a Games Design student at Brunel.
We also have information on our Games Design undergraduate courses pages.
