Course Overview

This highly vocational course was developed in response to an identified skills gap within the games industry, which has struggled to appoint adequately qualified programmers. Through close consultation with the industry, our programme team has crafted a curriculum that delivers the required specialist knowledge to make graduates significantly more employable. Our Foundation Degree will equip you for entry level programming positions in the games industry and provide enough transferable skills for entry to other programming roles, such as application development for software development companies. Students who progress to our BSc (Hons) top-up programme will be well placed to access higher level roles or even create their own start-up businesses.

Entry Requirements

Only students who have studied the Foundation Degree in Software Engineering & Game Development at Blackpool and The Fylde College and have achieved a minimum of a pass will be considered for this top-up course.
