Learn to design and create virtual reality environments and applications in one of the fastest moving arenas in the tech industry. Push boundaries with your ideas and work with our community of artists, animators, composers, designers, programmers, writers and game-makers to create exceptional immersive experiences.
You'll gain a detailed knowledge of virtual reality, with opportunities to work on live briefs for real clients, to specialise in a certain area and to market your creations in the real world.
Our graduates could go on to work as game, VR, XR or AR app designers and developers, software developers, content specialists and producers, 3D modellers, trainers and consultants within this emerging and exciting sector.
Giving you the opportunity to specialise – either as an artist making visual content or a designer authoring the scope of an experience – this virtual reality course demonstrates how game art and game design practices adapt to the demands of virtual reality. Working in teams encompassing a range of skills, you'll take a real-life approach as you develop technical, design and modelling expertise, and experience industry needs. With potential VR applications ranging from games to simulations, you'll study and produce work in areas like AR, VR and MR.
Your skills will be viable across the entire extended reality (XR) spectrum, giving you the tools to create a varied portfolio of professional work. This means that your career, either as an immersive content artist or designer, will have the strongest possible start.
Your regular learning will come from team-based projects, technical demonstrations, workshops, industry speakers, mentoring and project supervision, and 'crit' sessions, as well as lectures, seminars, tutorials and studio work.
You'll have weekly supervision meetings with your tutors to support your individual and team projects, receive constant feedback throughout the course, and have the chance to evaluate your own progress.
