Games Designer

If you have ever dreamed of working in the UK Video Games Industry, then the Train2Game Games Designer course may be the way in.

New Modular Structure

Most of our courses feature a flexible module-based structure to enhance your learning. You can select and combine modules to cover the exact mix of skills you wish to develop. Even better, all of the modules from our other modular courses are also available as optional modules for this course, subject to a points allowance and the necessary prerequisites being met.

The main condition is that all the core modules from your ‘main’ course are studied. This will enable you to undertake the final exams for the course. If you wish, you can go on to study any optional modules before or after these exams up to your points allowance for this course (shown clearly in the downloadable plan of the course at the bottom of this page).


Please be aware that your final grade/qualification will in no way be affected by your choice of additional modules; the ‘core’ modules for your own course will be sufficient to allow you to qualify (subject to a final exam).

Any additional modules you study are purely to enhance and maximise your own learning experience and help you pursue your chosen career path.
