Birmingham City University is to run several Gamer Camp ‘finishing school’ courses at its NTI Birmingham city-centre development facility.
The three courses, called Nano, Mini and Pro, are full-time commitments for accepted development students looking secure a job as artists or programmers in the games industry. They are overseen by course mentor Guy Wilday, formerly head of studio at Codemasters.
Course students are set a brief and mentored by representatives of studios like Blitz, Codemasters, FreeStyleGames and Rare. Those games will then be published via online platforms at a later date.
