How Is It Assessed
This course is assessed by continual assessment, rather than exams, and students will need to research, plan and produce practical work. All assignments have interim assessment points, when the lecturer assesses the work and shows the student how to improve their grades. Students requiring any support in producing written work, organising themselves or managing their time can access our academic mentors. All student work is moderated by the awarding body.
How Is It Taught
This course has a time span of 2 years. In year 1, you will have 2 projects, where you will learn and build on necessary skills related to Programming and Ludology (The study of games). After the 2 projects are done, you will be developing your own Final Major Project where you will create your own project proposal, and once approved, develop this with help from the tutors.
In the final year, you will be taught skills to further your knowledge in your own chosen specialist area and will consist of 3 self-driven projects that will be pitched to tutors for approval. You will also be given support on identifying progression options after the course to continue your academic or professional careers in Games Development.
