BA (Hons) Games Art

To anyone considering the Games Art course at Staffs I couldn’t recommend it more. The lecturers are great – they always push you to do the best and the subject matter is so interesting. If you want to be a character artist, there’s modules there. It goes beyond just the modules – there’s life drawing classes and there’s such a variety of different things you can be learning.

Adam Fortune
BA (Hons) Esports

In my first semester here I have created a society around our course, helped at Esports taster events at the Uni, met industry professionals, been invited to London for meetings and just genuinely been involved in as many things Esports related as I can.

Staffordshire University taught me both professional and personal skills. With the great placement year I had the opportunity to gain real industry experience, which meant I gained a lot of knowledge both involving programming but also professional and personal skills that I could bring back, and become a much better student.
