San Francisco-based academy Make School has introduced a new track dedicated to VR to its summer course schedule.

Focused on teaching devs how to design and build desktop and mobile VR games in Unity, as well as exploring the best practices for VR experiences, the programme has been curated with the assistance of Tony Parsi, one of the founding members of the Virtual Reality Modelling Language (VRML).

There are 30 places available for the eight-week course, which runs from June 20th to August 12st, which is aimed primarily at students with at least two years of programming experience. Applications are open until May 30th.

The admission price is $10,000, which includes tuition and access to the Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive headsets. Room and board is not included.

Students will also be provided with an Oculus-ready gaming PC, which they can keep afterwards.

A demo day will be held at the conclusion of the course, with Make School pledging to help students subsequently secure a job placement.
