“Abertay University helped me get my foot through the door in this industry. As with many computer graduates who dream of working in a game studio, I decided that the best way for me to get a job in this field would be by getting a Masters degree in Computer Games Technology.

Not only did I get exposure to code, the course also offered insights in the business of game development and the type of markets that are out there. The course helped me build my portfolio of projects which helped me get my first job in gaming.”
