Digital Creative Media (Games Development) Extended Diploma Level 3 - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

This course is for anyone who has a keen interest in creative digital media and in particular games design. If you have an interest in how the games industry works and how games can be created, then this is the course for you. Although people who enrol on this course enjoy playing games, this should not be the sole reason you choose to do this course as there is only very limited game playing and the vast majority of your time is learning how the industry works.

Units may include:

· Responding to a commission

· Working in the creative media industry

· Specialist subject investigation

· Media campaigns

· App production

· Games testing

· Games engines scripting

· 3D modelling and digital animation

Assessment Methods

The topics in this course are covered in a range of theoretical and practical teaching sessions. The majority of the units are internally assessed through assignment work graded at Pass, Merit and Distinction. Some of the units are externally assessed using different methods either through an on-screen exam or a controlled assessment.

Progression Options

There are a number of progression options. You could continue your studies at Bridgwater & Taunton College where there are related courses on offer all the way up to Level 6. You also have the option to go straight into industry, although this is very difficult without having a degree but it is possible with a very strong portfolio of work.
