    I own an indie studio, we've published 2 games on Google play and the App Store. However, we make very little money, not enough to live off.

    Well that's great! So now we're paying for nothing! No point in carrying on with these portfolios then I'm guessing! Or revising as the exams are out the window! So this mean I can just go straight onto c&g course?! Surely now there should be some kind of refund?!

    edit - i had totally forgot that there was the student world too previous to the new student campus that is for version 3 students (i believe). Whether the official update has occurred on the student world already i don't know but if this has not happened still. Message your tutor team about is all i can advise.
    Version 3 - On number 11 of 11 core modules. Currently on 'Advanced Animation and Visuals' module.

    Great stuff. All the best with you earning money from your projects that I realise can be a bit of work to come through with. I will take a look at your latest game now.

    Here's Tom' post...



    "I have some information for you from the management:

    Train2Game are continually aiming to provide the best possible services for our students, and to ensure that our students have the greatest chance of success in the industry. With this in mind we decided to terminate the agreement with TIGA and direct our students to the City & Guilds qualification - which has significantly better industry recognition.

    We feel that the City & Guilds qualification has a much higher value to our students and puts them in a better position to secure work in the industry. The City & Guilds qualification is recognised on the QCF (the Qualifications and Credit Framework) - unfortunately, the TIGA qualification was not. The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) is the national credit transfer system for education qualification in England, Northern Ireland and Wales. Undertaking a qualification which is on the QCF means that the qualification is fully recognised academically; unfortunately the TIGA qualification is not recognised by the QCF and therefore, after careful consideration, we concluded that taking it was not in the best interest of our students.

    We recently surveyed our students and 98% indicated that they wished to proceed to the City & Guilds qualification.

    We have therefore provided a qualification to our students that has a much greater value. The City & Guilds qualification is also internationally recognised and - bearing in mind the international nature of the video games industry - it is important that our students have a qualification that is internationally recognised.

    I would like to reiterate that we can't address your individual concerns here - if you have questions about how this relates to your specific circumstances, please contact your tutors."
