The Games Development team at Northbrook College have made the course so engaging and informative, whilst keeping it fun with all the new softwares and activities we’ve been provided with. I’ve learnt so much throughout this first year, ranging from how big gaming industries work in the modern-day, to personal use of how to make concept art, 3D models, and programming for gaming softwares. Whilst it was quite a lot to take in, especially having no knowledge about these things originally, the team are always there to help with any problems and guide you through things carefully and to your understanding. With some independence and consistency, you can turn any of these paths into a career for you.

Northbrook College’s Games Development team have provided me with the tools and knowledge to start my game career. Over the last couple of years on level one and level two, I’ve been taught how to produce concept art, 3D models, and program by using the industry’s software and techniques. The course has provided me as a student to discover and develop on what kind of game artist I’d like to be but also it has allowed me to make my own choices and decisions towards certain problems to create amazing outcomes. However, as a person, the course has given me confidence and strengths to talk and be involved with others.
