Pulse College in association with Windmill Lane Studios are offering a free 33 week Game Development and Project Management Course funded by Momentum, aimed at re-skilling those on the live register for the game industry.

It is a high-level course, aimed at those who already possess a degree, or genuine interest in the industry. The aim is produce work-ready graduates who can be an asset to companies.

Additionally, they will all undertake work placement for 10 days. I have secured internships with companies like Riot, BatCat, Bitsmith etc., but the college is seeking additional companies. Contact Naomi Moore at pulse@pulsecollege.eu
