    Dunno know anything about this course, but there is a BSc (Hons) Computer Games Programming course running in Derby University. http://www.derby.ac.uk/prospectus/ugprospectus/coursedetails.asp?Id=693

    I’ve heard a rumour that they are offering scolarships to women who want to do the course.

    Again, I know nothing about the quality of university or the course.

    Yup, we’re in Derby.

    I don’t know anything about the course. I saw on the website that they have a mandatory year placement, but there is definitely no student here from the uni now. It could be the course is new, it could be we don’t deal with them, I have no idea.
    Looking at Derby, you have Core, Circle, Eurocom and Criterion in close proximity and I guess, its not that far from Codemasters, Rare and several others….

    We were talking about that yesterday…i think its not a scolarship, but a bursary or something. Think there might be a summer course and from that you get offered it. Don’t know the details, but it seems to be legit.

    Criterion head office is in Guildford, they have an office just down the road from Core in Derby. Think its a RenderWare office.

    Not sure where Rare are, but they’re in the vacinity…
