How can Train2Game help me get into the games industry?

No education provider, course or qualification can guarantee you a job in the video games industry and it is important to remember that as well as a qualification, a portfolio of work is needed at the interview stage.

T2G courses are designed to help students practice and produce a volume of work from which to create such a portfolio, providing a good grounding for those looking to enter the sector. A student who has studied a T2G course may also find employment in other sectors of the economy since it teaches a range of transferable skills.

The T2G qualification is also recognised by some universities, allowing direct entry to the first, second or third year of an undergraduate degree course if students wish to further advance their skills.

What software do you learn and work with on Train2Game courses?

Train2Game students are provided with all the software they need to complete their courses and develop their portfolios. Depending on the course they are studying students will be provided with 3DS Max, Photoshop, Mudbox, Visual Studio Express, Office Suites, code blocks, video/audio capture software as well as commercially available and specially developed game engines and game creation tools.
