Space Ape teams up with London universities for Varsity: Masterclass programme in March

UK mobile games developer Space Ape has teamed up with the University of Greenwich and University College London to deliver a set of seminars aimed at inspiring students to get into the industry.

The six sessions are tailor-made to give participants a taste of the gaming and esports industry and will run throughout March. The sessions will specifically focus on game design, UI/UX, development and community engagement, among other topics.

The peek into the games industry will be equally split between the two campuses, with Greenwich classes focusing on game development while UCL classes will look at competitive play.

Inspiring the next generation

The University of Greenwich classes will take place each Monday on March 5th, March 12th and March 19th from 6pm to 7pm. The UCL classes meanwhile will occur on March 6th, March 13th and March 20th from 5pm to 6pm.

You can register to attend the events over on Eventbrite. Space Ape will also be livestreaming the sessions on Twitch for those who can't make it in person.

The number of students taking part in games-related courses has increased substantially in recent times. Over the last five years, the number of pupils to graduate with a video game-related degree has risen by 116 per cent.
