Studying Creative Media and Game Technologies
The first year consists of four blocks. The first three cover basic skills that build towards tightly defined projects to enhance your knowledge, all supported by lectures and seminars. The fourth block continues this, while you also work in cross-disciplinary teams to develop a game, practising your skills in a real project and learning how to work in a small development team.
Year 2 consists of four blocks. You spend two blocks further developing your basic skills in your chosen role. In the other two blocks, you work in small multidisciplinary teams building game projects, supported by lectures and seminars. You also have the possibility to go on exchange for one semester.
This year you specialise in your chosen role either working in a multidisciplinary team on a year-long game project or in a smaller specialist team supporting the game project. You also have the possibility to go on exchange for one semester.
In the graduation year you work on two projects that may include:
Or combine the two projects and work on a year-long project, or go on a year-long internship.
We also encourage our students to go abroad during their studies. In year 4, students participate in projects at companies around the world.
