Overview

From 2D platformers to 3D brawlers, you'll be devising and creating your own interactive stories, digital illustrations, concept art and games that will be viewed by an international audience of game enthusiasts. Within the first sixteen weeks of your first year, you'll have created your very own 2D game and, by the time you've finished your degree, you'll have collaborated with other game artists and programmers alike to develop an industry-level game.  

If you are serious about fast-tracking your way into this multi-million dollar global industry, you'll want to make a beeline to a dedicated course that mirrors the industry environment. You'll also want to get alongside lecturers with industry experience who can give you industry insights. Over three years, this Game Art at Media Design School will help you develop your artistic style and technical skills through a combination of traditional art practices and using industry standard software.

In the final year, you'll be collaborating with a group of artists and programmers on a major game project, just like in the real world. With this portfolio and experience in your back pocket, you'll have the necessary skills to enter the industry, either in a game studio or as an indie developer.
