hey, welcome to the site.
There should be a few people knocking about here who are on this course. At least there was a while back.
I cant really answer either of your questions unfortunately although i can make a stab at the “will it get you a job question”. I would be a little wearly of these courses as alot of them are in their infancy therefore they’re worth is still to be shown. Although some of them seem to have good cirriculums. Typically people working within the industry have degrees in computer\maths\engineering. Also a recent study should that last year out of 50 graduates EA took on only 1 from a games specific degree course, although this probably doesnt tell us much.
Anyway im sure some the lads can help ya on here.
