Manchester’s School of Sound Recording (SSR) has branched out once again with its boundary-pushing courses across Computer Game Development.
Expert teaching is combined with access to even better state-of-the-art facilities to help students aiming to take the first steps along the virtual road into a global industry predicted to be worth $113bn by 2018.
Whether you’re setting the crosshairs to pastures new or tilting the joystick in the direction of a career in one of the most exhilarating and fast-growing sectors, you can power up your skills and find your special ability, be it in 3D animation, scripting, mapping, design or game-play mechanics.
Their six-month Game Development Industry Diplomas are starting soon, with classes beginning on Tuesday 22 March. Alternatively, explore SSR’s world of options from year-long tuition to full academic undergraduate honours, validated by the University of Bolton and launching from September 2016. If you’d like a head start, there’s an eight-day summer taster course in Games Design from Monday 8 August.
We’re working with SSR across our multiple platforms to share the good news. Over the coming weeks, keep your eyes peeled for fittingly creative SSR installations: in the Bag Thing poster frames at Port Street Beer House, Common and Fopp; adorning the February Bag Thing flyer packs; inserted in February flyer packs as a specially designed games console controller; and on our brand new website (spoiler alert: arriving on your screens from February!).
