BA (Hons) Computer Games Design at Newport is one of the oldest and most established games design courses in Britain. It has an international reputation for teaching, research, award winning alumni and quality student experience. Our graduating students will be showcasing their games and exhibiting their concept art. They will be illustrating their innovative and exciting game mechanics, novel concepts and progressive aesthetics.
This degree concentrates on design and creative skills with continual prototyping. Students follow a rigorous interrogation of the key concepts of games design; from character design, illustration, and 3D modelling, to understanding game mechanics, pitching and project management, utilising an iterative design process throughout. Theoretical and cultural knowledge of games is built up throughout the course to underpin the design process.
Our award winning students have continued into employment at Lionhead, Creative Assembly and garnered substantial funding and support from international bodies such as Indie Fund and Microsoft.
