Celebrations are in order as all 15 students from our Level 3 Games Design course have been accepted to study at Teesside University in September.

Students have accepted places on Games Art, Games Design, Animation, Games Programming and Music Technology.

One student looking forward to her new adventure in September is Chloe who has chosen to study Games Design. She said: “I’ve wanted to be a creative director of gaming since Year 6 so it feels really good to get into uni.”

Throughout their two year course, students have learned how to create and develop games, 3D images and virtual realities using industry-standard equipment such as 3ds max and UnrealEngine 4 to create their work.


“Some of the things we will learn on the first year of the course I already know because we use the same equipment here at Stockton Riverside College because Paul teaches us at a university level” Said Chloe.

When asked about how he feels having all 15 students progress to university, Games Design teacher Paul Abley said: “I’m extremely proud of them all but I can’t take the credit, they’ve all worked so hard in class and outside of the classroom. It just goes to show that when you’ve got a passion for something and you’re willing to work hard, you’ll get there.”

It’s not too late to apply for our Games Design course starting in September. Find out more and apply here.
