2. Course description

This highly vocational course was developed in response to an identified skills gap within the games industry, which has struggled to appoint adequately qualified programmers. Through close consultation with the industry, our programme team has crafted a curriculum that delivers the required specialist knowledge to make graduates significantly more employable. Our Foundation Degree will equip you for entry level programming positions and provide enough transferable skills for entry to other programming roles, such as application development for software development companies. Students who progress to our BSc (Hons) top-up programme will be well placed to access higher level roles or even create their own start-up businesses.

3. Entry requirements

Only students who have studied the Foundation Degree in Software Engineering (App Development) at Blackpool and The Fylde College and have achieved a minimum of a pass will be considered for this top-up course.

4. Equipment required

Resources required to achieve the learning outcomes of the programme are provided by the College. You should be aware that there may be additional costs to consider such as optional educational visits and photocopying/printing.

5. Assessment method

Most courses are assessed via a combination of coursework, exams and practical assessments. Exams are formal, timed written assessments, carried out in a controlled environment and overseen by one or more invigilators. Coursework differs from exams in that it is usually non-timed and carried out independently. Practical assessments involve observation of your practical skills and competencies by a trained assessor.
