The Games Academy has moved up the list of the best places in the world to study games design. At number 28, it’s the top ranked university in England and one of the top 30 worldwide, according to the Princeton Review.
Director of the Games Academy, Dr Douglas Brown, believes that the latest rankings are a testament to his staff’s dedication and expertise.
“Globally, new games design courses are opened every year. For Falmouth to not just retain last year’s ranking but improve by eleven places is a fantastic achievement.
“The Falmouth Games Academy is a remarkable place that’s a production powerhouse. Our students work in an environment that mirrors industry practice. They’re working in world-class studios, in multi-disciplinary teams, taught by practicing professions and creating real games and digital artifacts throughout their course.
"This approach means they’re ready to make in impact as soon as they graduate. We’re pleased that this great result in the Princeton Review rankings follows the recent success of one of our MA Game Design student teams, The Knights of Borria, who were awarded development funding by Tranzfuser for their post-apocalyptic game Rustbreaker”.
Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's Editor-in-Chief, said, "We recommend these schools highly to students considering careers in the exciting field of game design. All of the schools that made our lists for 2020 have excellent programs, outstanding faculties, and awesome, state-of-the-art facilities. Not surprisingly, they count among their alumni many of the video game industry’s most prominent artists, designers, developers, and entrepreneurs.”
