I'm a Erasmus student, and I must say that having 2 modules (AI and Project) is kinda depressing. AI is just "watch my classes that are recorded in the university platform", and project is "Q&A monday, and do what you want the rest of the week" read more

The course covers everything you'll need to know about game creation and even teaches coding from the very beginning. You only need existing knowledge of A level Maths to do well. read more

If you want to study art here, just spare your money and time and get some good online courses, you will learn just as much, since lecturers don't go farther than teaching the basics of any software here. The majority of learning is always on you and the feedback is extremely lacking. You will see huge posters about taking care of your mental health plastered along the halls because they are at the point they expect you to feel depressed during the time here. No one can manage their time and feedback lacking is always blamed on lack of time overall, even though they have months to prepare and review their schedules. You will have to deal with academic researchers who never had to apply to a game career in their life and game designers who wish to enslave you to create bizarre and boring game concepts which you’ll never ever be able to display in your portfolio because they’re so awkward, even for student projects. And yes, the above is the art course. Stay away, trust me on this. read more

Massive waste of time. Catered almost entirely to game design students. Whole units will be spent as slaves to make THEIR units feasible, because they don't have the talent to actually do anything on their own. And then, to make up for that, you'll have big personal projects where you'll be lucky to get 1 minute of feedback a week because the tutors are too busy gabbing away with the students they're "pally" with and never bother to circulate until it's too late and they "promise they'll get to everyone next time". They won't. read more

Computer Game Applications Development, BSc Hons FullTime

MPROF in Game Development (not even listed here) is a waste of time. The closest word coming to my mind when I think about it is 'scam'. It's way below Masters level of education. Lecturers don't care about us. The feeling that they're here just to get easy money is clearly visible. We are left on our own with everything. We had to find our own projects and professional game developers to get feedback from them (if you don't know any of them personally then you have to bother unknown people - the best way to get blacklisted!). Lecturers will eventually tell you if you did enough or not - it's all that this uni has to offer. This and PC with Adobe software (other software is mostly available for free anyway) and MS Office (it's our main tool, not game engines). As a bonus, we got a module in which lecturer is focused on politics and social justice, not on game development itself. Are you ready to pay 5, 9 or 15k for this? I heard from other courses that it's not better there. read more
