logoepicgamesWe’re sure there are many gamers out there who wish that they could learn how to create games just as good, if not better, than the ones that they love to play. Perhaps even land themselves a job at their favorite game studio too. Well that requires some level of education, whether self-taught or in school, but for those who are planning to enrol into a school, perhaps Staffordshire University could be one of your options. Epic Games has recently announced that they have formed a two-year partnership with Staffordshire University in which an Epic Games Centre will be create, which is basically a fully equipped space that students who are part of the university’s game design course can use.

The agreement will also provide students with the necessary hardware, the materials, as well as access to key personnel who will be able to help them further develop their game design skills. According to Staffordshire University’s Head of the Games Technology Group, Dr. Bobbie Fletcher, “We have many great courses here at Staffs but this partnership will give our students a deeper understanding of how theory is put into practice and a greater understanding of the commercial complexities of the development process.” This is a pretty cool-sounding course and will see Staffordshire join other universities in offering a comprehensive game design course.
