Course Overview

The UAL Diploma in Creative Media Production (Games Development) is offered at level 2 and level 3. In partnership with the University of Huddersfield, using a project-based approach, you will learn industry standard skills that allow you to create three fully playable games in each year.

Using industry standard software (Unity), you will research, plan, develop, test, and showcase your games to a selection of your peers.
During this one-year course, you will study a range of units that are taught as projects, each project will involve making your own game using industry standard software such as the Unity engine. You will develop 2D games based on different genres to develop the skills needed to enable you to undertake a final project that you are assessed on, based on a given theme.
You will undertake group projects and develop essential skills that will help you to progress to the next level, ultimately working in the games development industry.

The course offers a broad range of practical study, using great facilities with industry-standard equipment. You’ll complete various assessments throughout your study, resulting in a final industry-standard games showreel, and an end of year show where you’ll showcase your work professionally.
