Program Description

Game Development Programme

Oxford Royale Academy

Introduction

For students who are computer game enthusiasts, and would like to investigate the possibility of working in the games industry, this course will provide a perfect opportunity to gain practical experience, and either start a portfolio of work, or make valuable additions to their existing body of work.

The Project

As with all of our Oxford Gap Year and Oxford Study Programme subjects, the Game Development Programme focuses on the production of an extended piece of work that the student will conceptualise and produce independently under the guidance of our tutors. This will likely consist of a playable game concept, developed from an idea through to a playable alpha-state project. Students will explore ideas and concepts with their experienced tutors, moving through to early exploration of the Unity game engine, before spending the bulk of their time in constructing and refining their game.

Topics Covered

Following an initial Orientation Week, tutoring at our International Study Centre begins. This phase introduces the student to some of the fundamental areas of game development, using the Unity engine as the basis for lessons. Students will cover:

  • Scripting
  • Animation
  • Asset Generation and Management
  • Optimisation
  • Quality Assurance Testing
  • Audio
This school offers programs in:
  • English
