Fast-track degree for digital

Birmingham City University offers new fast-track degree to equip digital designers and gamers of tomorrow

With the UK facing a growing shortage of digital skills, Birmingham City University is now offering a fast-track two-year degree for budding programmers, web developers and digital buffs. 

The new Interactive Entertainment courses condense a full-time degree into just two years, led by course tutors with decades of industry experience with global brands including Samsung, Louis Vuitton and Crytek.

“When we speak to our partners in the games and digital industries, they constantly stress the need for graduates to have real experience in their specialism, and in working collaboratively, alongside people with different skillsets,” said Interactive Entertainment programme director Zuby Ahmed. 

“Students can expect to be designing art assets for video games and working on computer coding, whilst other students will be preparing social media and digital marketing campaigns,” added Ahmed.
