Results are finally in, and everyone is thinking about where they are going to university, or maybe asking if university is right for them. And you know what? It’s the perfect time. A lot of people may be talking about pandemics and lockdowns and recessions, but you have an amazing opportunity right now.

Because it’s all a bit crazy out there, there has never been a better time to study and enhance your knowledge and skill set. Work towards employment, which you’ll be ready for in a few years time, and skip all the drama and stress of a slow market that exists today. For postgraduates, it’s even a good time to think about going back to higher education and growing your skills and qualifications.

Why study Games?

Gaming has changed a lot. Not that long ago, gaming was something we did with a small group of friends over a board set up around a living room table. Kids used to crowd around their mate with a few coins at the arcade to see if they could beat Space Invaders.

Fast forward to today and we’re talking about a nearly £200 billion industry that supports fully professional global competitions and captivates the imagination of millions of children and adults from every walk of life. Live streamed gaming events have become almost as popular as the largest sporting events.

That’s the industry you could step into with a degree in Games. Studying the design and build of great games creates amazing career opportunities in a sector that is growing rapidly and is showing no signs of slowing down.

The University of Bolton’s state-of-the-art £13 million facility includes the Centre for Games Development, with seven bespoke development studios including a 30-seat Cintiq studio and an open-access virtual reality suite.
