London OR Live Online
This experience is almost fully-booked and we shall close registration in the next few days.
The Young Video Game Designer Summer Experience gives students aged 15-18 a 360-degree, fully immersive experience of working as a Video Game Designer in London.
Over the course of 10 days, students aged 15-18 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of video game design that one can imagine: design a video game from start to finish, present your game to a panel of experts in the heart of East London’s bustling tech city and elevate every aspect of the design process with masterclasses in visuals, music and script. Also available on the experience is an immersive visit to an independent game studio, the opportunity to test previously unreleased video games.
Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful video game designer.

In the unlikely event that the in-person programme is completely cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will receive a refund. We have never yet had to cancel a London summer experience, having successfully delivered programmes during the summers of 2020 and 2021, with strict social distancing and excellent feedback. We shall of course adhere to all Covid-related government guidelines in place at the time of the programme and keep student safety as the highest priority.
If you pay via credit because you postponed a previous booking then the credit note will be reissued to you in full.
