At Futuregames we always try to adjust our courses to the needs of the games industry. As we think everybody understands games development is becoming increasingly specialised. For this reason, we are now launching an updated format for our Game Artist, Game Designer and Game Programmer educations adding the additional six months of specialization. This year, Game Artist Specialization is being offered in Malmö. We are currently working on finding solutions for those who had intended to apply for this education in Stockholm.
In the new version of these educations, students will pick between one of two possible areas of specialization in the fourth semester of their education allowing them to prepare even better for their internships. New courses have been designed to support these specialized roles and each class will divide into two groups to accommodate this. There is still plenty of scope in the education for you to develop your own individual talent and professional skills but by dividing the class we will be able to even better support you in your future career.
Develop core competencies in game development by learning from industry professionals and teachers from leading companies in the industry.

Some of these companies and studios includes King, Avalanche Studios, Ubisoft, EA DICE, Fatshark, Paradox Interactive, Starbreeze Studios, Glorious Games Group, Uprise, NEAT Corporation, Epic Games, Really Interactive, and the list goes on.
