The eSports industry is one of the fastest growing video games industries in the UK.
This course focuses on the multimedia and business side of eSports. You will learn in a practical and technical environment focusing on promotion, managing and building individual/team based content. You will also have the opportunity to develop vital knowledge about the industry and its fan base, as well as explore the games played in this exciting and fast-paced sector.
You'll use your knowledge, skills and judgement to initiate and complete semi-complex tasks and procedures (within limits). You'll address problems with a level of independence but will need awareness of different viewpoints or approaches within your area of study or work. eSports competitions will run alongside the core curriculum and most likely after your taught sessions.
You will be assessed through coursework (submitted throughout the year).
Successful completion of the Year 1 90 Credit Diploma will allow you to progress on to the second year and complete the full Extended Diploma. From there, you can go into the following:
University: This qualification provides UCAS tariff points and supports your progression to higher education in a games design related subject, such as the Foundation Degree in Games Art and Design at Coleg Gwent.
