UAL Digital Media: Games and Interactive Media Extended Diploma

Gaming is one of the fastest-growing and thriving industries in the UK. It’s home to global software and development houses, with smaller independent studios bursting with world-class talent. Whether it’s for online, console, mobile or even working on gaming hardware, there’s never been a better time to work in this rapidly growing industry. If you want to take your love of gaming and turn that into a career, then this is definitely the course for you. It’s an advanced course that focuses on a wide range of computer-based media skills, giving you everything you need to begin a career in game and web design.

You’ll be using new, industry-standard software, such as Unreal Engine, and working in our Apple Mac suites. Everything is designed to reflect the equipment that professionals use, getting you ready to enter the industry with the skills you need to succeed. This course is the equivalent of 3 A Levels. Once you’ve completed Level 3, you can apply to the foundation degree in Games and Interactive Design at University Centre South Devon – the perfect progression route if you want to continue your studies. This degree focuses on the technical and artistic use of digital technologies, offering you the chance to specialise in game design or app and web development.

Entry Requirements
What will I learn?

"Having progressed from a Level 3 course in Games and Interactive Media at South Devon College, I knew that there were excellent facilities and levels of support. The fact that UCSD is local also meant I would save money by staying at home, which was really beneficial. The support of the tutors has helped me transition into university-level study, which has been very positive. I contributed to an employment and research scholarship, where we secured an Oculus Rift display, which I'll be using to simulate and test some of the 3D spaces I've created. When I complete my studies at UCSD I will go on to complete a top-up year, before entering employment. At the moment I'm planning on working as either a graphic designer or in 3D modelling using the skills I've learnt during my studies."Jack Gladman
