Futuregames offers higher vocational educations, folk high school educations and courses in game development.
Higher Vocational Educations
The higher vocational educations include Game Programmer, Game Designer, 2D Artist and 3D artist. We opened its doors in September 2008 and since then, more than 1000 individuals have been educated and started working in the Swedish games industry.
The educations are between 90 – 110 weeks long (450 – 550 higher vocational education points), spreading out over a two-three year period. The programs are full-time, on-location only and take place in central Stockholm, Sweden.
Futuregames is one of more than 1000 post-secondary level higher vocational educations, sponsored by The Swedish National Agency for Higher Vocational Education – Yrkeshögskolan
Higher Vocational Education programs have come about as a response to a real labor market need and their operations are in concert with employers and the industry. Students will be prepared for a direct entry into the employment market.
The Swedish National Agency for Higher Vocational Education decide which programs are to be provided and allocated public funding to. YH also carries out follow-ups, evaluations and inspections. Completion of a minimum two-year program at Futuregames will results in an YH Advanced Diploma in Higher Vocational Education.
A key part of the YH system is that it requires more than 80% of the graduated students to find a job within the industry within six months of completing the education. This rigid requirement acts as guarantee that we are completely focused on getting our students into the industry.
Folk High School Educations
We also provide folk high school educations including Indiespelutvecklare – Game Designer and Indiespelutvecklare – Game Programmer in Boden, Sweden as well as Gamemaker – Basic Game Development (distance learning) together with Sunderbyns Folkhögskola.
