Our Computer Science for Mobile Game Art Production degree will equip you with a range of programming skills that will help you stand out from the crowd as a graduate moving into industry. You could also consider establishing yourself as a freelance designer – or perhaps opening your own independent studio. There are so many possibilities to choose from!

At ARU Peterborough you’ll be taught by industry experts from Year 1, making connections and ensuring that you develop relevant employability skills.

Every year, ARU runs and hosts the annual Brains Eden computer games careers event which offers opportunities for professionals and students alike.

Our free Employability Service will help you take practical steps to follow your chosen career path, secure jobs, and work experience, or even start your own business.

Graduation doesn’t have to be the end of your time with us. You might decide to stay at ARU and study for a Masters.

These all give you an edge, providing you with experience that you will be able to evidence on your CV and talk about in interviews.
