In collaboration with City of Westminster College, we are excited to introduce you to our new programs:


Games Design + English


Overview:

This course is designed to introduce key skills to design, code and create the art to develop your very own video games. The game engine used for this course is Unity; industry standard software used to develop a wide range of titles, from small indie projects, to big-budget triple-A successes.

This is a practical course, students will learn through a combination of follow-along tutorials, as well as guided independent research. Upon completion of practical tasks, students will be encouraged to present what they have accomplished.

And of course our English classes will help diving into local culture and improve English language level.
