If your ambition is to make games, then this course, run in conjunction with creative industry leaders taught from our ACM London and Guildford Campuses, builds the skills you need to fulfil that dream and carve out a career in gaming. Whether you want to be a programmer, a designer, an artist, or sound designer, you can put your knowledge into practice with your fellow students, supported by tutors who are working at the heart of the gaming industry. You’ll make completed, publishable games, using an interdisciplinary approach that distinguishes this Game Development course from the rest.

As you progress and in true ACM style, project teamwork will be at the heart of your learning experience, as recommended by the creative industry. You’ll also be paired with an expert Mentor, who’ll offer a unique insight into the industry and help you build contacts. All of the knowledge acquired along the way is complemented by the development of skills that are gained in your specialist area. There are four to choose from (art, audio, design or programming), given the diversity of the gaming industry.
