The Year in Review
BA (Hons) Games Art and Design
Words by Mark Wickham, Course Leader
Welcome to the 2021 Games Art and Design (GAD) Graduate Showcase.
The past academic year has presented more than its fair share of challenges, but it has also delivered some exceptional results for BA (Hons) Games Art and Design.
Autodesk’s The Rookies international judging panel, made up of industry professionals, ranked the course in the top 50 in the world, and the only UK institution to be listed for Concept Art, ranked 16th.
We have seen tremendous successes from winning not one, but two national UKIE Game Jams. Students have engaged with numerous external projects, taking part in the Global Games Jam, New3dge and several ArtStation contests, and have benefitted from UKIE student membership and the Women in Games’ Education Ambassador’s programme.
