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.

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.

Why study Games?

The gaming industry 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.
