Some students require specialist outdoor equipment and/or personal protective equipment and should budget up to £150. And that’s not just while you are a student, our support carries on after you’ve graduated. Get professional advice and support with career planning, CV writing and interview top tips. Outside of your course, our Careers Service is here to support you as you discover (and re-discover) your strengths and what matters to you. We are here for you throughout your university journey as you work towards a fulfilling and rewarding career. Each year you’ll also get to enjoy the Brighton Digital Festival which brings together the city’s arts and digital cultures and communities.

The module will cover the integration of audio into game engines like Unity and middleware such as FMOD, and mixing techniques particular to the gaming industry. This module will help you to develop important academic and professional skills. Team work, project and time management, as well as research, verbal and written communication skills are core skills that a graduate will need to demonstrate. In order to help you develop these types of skills the module will be delivered using a problem based learning approach. Annual and modular tuition fees shown are applicable to the first year of study.

International & Eu Entry Requirements

We accept applications from October for students wanting to start the following September. You will study how to deconstruct designs from a designer vs a player perspective allowing you to build your own design patterns, reward cycles and hence optimise player enjoyment. Mobile considerations, multiplayer and the use of analytics is covered allowing the student to make informed design choices. This module covers the basics of 3d modelling, texturing, rigging and animation. Students will learn how to use modelling software to create a range of 3D rigid body assets varying from buildings to vehicles to household objects to vegetation to roads and terrain, etc.

Full-time students applying to start in September should apply for this course through UCAS. This dynamic course equips you with both the theoretical grounding and the practical skills you need to develop compelling computer games. The city of Brighton & Hove is a forward-thinking place which leads the way in the arts, technology, sustainability and creativity. We have regular contact with games developers across the UK, including Hangar 13, Studio Gobo, Electric Square, BossAlien, and Mediatonic, as well as with companies such as Unity Technologies and GitHub. In your career you need a combination of knowledge, skills, personal qualities and relevant experiences – and you’ll get all of this from your degree. You will have access to professional-standard equipment and applications, and work across various platforms to prepare you for work in a range of professional environments.

  • We offer scholarships for elite athletes, elite disabled athletes and talented sports performers.
  • Engage with the thriving games sector through live briefs, games conferences, end of year show and various field trips in the UK and abroad.
  • This three-day course gives you the opportunity to achieve an industry-recognised qualification and add another desirable qualification to your CV.
  • The module focuses on the skills needed to build a viable/investment-ready business plan and pitching it to investors/employers in a industry style Dragons Den.
  • As a professional eSports player, Lewis has been able to combine his passion for video games in the technical context of programming, and is now looking to launch his career by creating his very own indie game.
  • Previous examples of this type of work have been submission of games to Microsoft’s international student competition, the Imagine Cup as well as working on ideas provided by industry.

Students taking this module will have already developed proficiency in the use of a professional 3D Modelling and Animation software application, and so will understand the principles of modelling, lighting, texturing and rendering. This module will enable them to strengthen these skills and build a portfolio of 3D computer assets and 3D animation. They will acquire additional skills such as the use of 3D sculpting software, rendering using techniques such as global illumination and image-based lighting with a high understanding and skill. Students will be able to show their modelled work as a turntable animation using different rendering techniques. The module gives essential background in applied mathematics and physics for computer games developers. This will be done with a strong focus on practical engineering aspects and all the theoretical concepts will be introduced as elements of solutions of real problems typically encountered during the games development process.

Student Life

This should include a good knowledge of object oriented programming and mathematics. This programme will give you the skills to design and develop games with state-of-the-art tools and technologies. You’ll learn about the latest developments in artificial intelligence and machine learning and how these are being applied in the games industry. We are home to both a world-leading research group in Games and AI and the IGGI PhD programme, a UK-wide community of over 60 PhD students in games research. Regarding the variables related to the studies, namely the sample characteristics, the results of this systematic review showed that the majority of studies have been conducted on young adults (18–35 years) rather than middle-aged adults (35–55 years).

The first year of the course focuses on developing your fundamental skills in designing, developing and programming simple 2D and 3D games. As you progress through to the second year the emphasis moves to developing more sophisticated 3D games and learning to develop more complex solutions to technical problems. The third and fourth year focus more on the fundamental technologies behind how games and game engines are made. The Game industry has overtaken the film industry in terms of revenue and audio is an integral part of developing high impact titles. In this module, you will explore the fundamentals of sound design for interactive environments, including sound effects, Foley sound, soundscapes and dialogue.
