Work placements

If you choose to complete one of our sandwich courses with a work placement between the second and final years of the course, our placement staff will work with you to identify a suitable location for your work placement. Please also note that you are responsible for any costs incurred in travelling to and from your work placement, and for any accommodation costs.

Course content

As soon as you start the course, you’ll begin to develop a portfolio. This will include creating games, studying game artificial intelligence and physics, computer graphics using DirectX and OpenGL, and network programming for multiplayer game development. You’ll learn programming languages such as C++, Java and C# as well as the software engineering skills needed to develop large, efficient programs.

During Year 2, you’ll work in a team to develop a game from an initial concept to a finished product. We’ll also give you the opportunity to pitch your games to commercial games studios such as Matmi, Team 17 and Media Molecule.

In your final year, you can specialise in your own area of interest. You’ll work in a group to complete a game development project that simulates game industry working practices. You’ll also undertake an individual final year project. This could involve developing a complete game, or researching and implementing an advanced topic in game development.

Academic year

The course operates on a modular basis that provides flexibility and choice. Typically the majority of modules are 30 academic credits with a smaller number of 15 credit modules. Each credit taken equates to a total study time of around 10 hours. Total study time includes scheduled teaching, independent study and assessment activity. Full-time students take modules worth 60 credits per semester, with part-time students taking proportionately fewer credits per semester. All students take a total of 120 credits per level and 360 credits for the degree as a whole. Your overall grade for the course and your degree classification are based on the marks obtained for modules taken at levels 5 and 6. The full-time course has one start point in September.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and laboratory practicals. Seminars enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups of around 16-18 students. In addition, you will have timetabled meetings with your personal tutor at least twice a year. You will be taught in first-class learning spaces throughout your course. Many of our courses are accredited or recognised by professional, statutory or regulatory bodies.

Assessment

Your course will provide you with opportunities to test your understanding of your subject informally before you complete the formal assessments that count towards your final mark. Each module normally includes practice or ‘formative’ assessments, for which you receive feedback from your tutor. Practice assessments are developmental and any grades you receive for them do not count towards your module mark. There is a formal or ‘summative’ assessment at the end of each module. This includes a range of coursework assessments, such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations, final year, independent project and written examinations. The grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark.

Our students

The people were the best part of my time at Staffs. All the lecturers and most of the students were people who had a passion for games as well as thoroughly enjoy programming, and a majority of the assignments reflected this, with even the classically less enjoyable areas of programming like networking being made more enjoyable with gamification.

The computers at the University are up-to-date with multiple monitors which makes it very nice to use them for programming. The University also has things like VR Kits that are useable if you request. Additionally, the library which is open 24/7 is extremely useful as both a quiet place to get stuff done as well as a resource to read pretty much every good book you could need about programming.

Jamie Coogan

Graduate, BSc (Hons) Computer Games Programming

I went to Bavaria for a year to work at Airbus, helping create the helicopter software and ensuring it passed every test they could throw at it. It was an absolutely fantastic experience, I got to work at a huge company and live in Europe for a year, even went to Oktoberfest with the other placement students!

I now work at Codemasters. I managed to get hired straight after final year thanks to the job opportunities the University helped provide and I’ve been enjoying it ever since.
