    Course Content

    This course will teach you to program and develop the latest games and interactive applications, understand games hardware and programming techniques, as well as developing entertaining games content.

    Your first year lays the foundation for the study of computer science, which is essential to computer games and interactive media programming. This will allow you to apply for the widest range of jobs once you leave.

    The course covers the essentials of games technology, such as state-of-the-art techniques in computer graphics for real-time rendering of game environments, physics programming for realistic game interaction, artificial intelligence for creating compelling game opponents, and networking essentials for game operability, user-centred design techniques, playability and games concept development as well as the latest developments in the games and creative industries.

    Your course will be based on a series of lectures, with associated seminars, workshops and practical classes. In addition, your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice.

    You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
