Follow in the footsteps of our Escapees who are working at the likes of Rockstar Games and Ubisoft.

Don’t just play the game, create the game. Video games are evolving across all devices making it an exciting time to study and work in the industry. Our degree is perfect for those wanting to become a Games Artist. It will provide you with both the professional skills and knowledge that the industry is looking for or that you'll need to start your own studio.

Become a Games Artist from day one - working in industry-style studios using the latest tools and techniques and working as part of a team on high-quality creative projects. You’ll have intensive, hands-on tutorials with industry-trained tutors who, alongside practising professionals, will provide regular feedback on your work.

You'll graduate studio ready, with a professional portfolio of work to show employers, and a degree awarded by the University of Kent.
