I'm not a student, but I am deciding whether or not to take the Game Developer course and I need your advice, since the website itself doesn't give much info.
First of all, the site says that the course gives you a City and Guilds qualification, but what type of course is it, and what level? (I currently already hold a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT, and I'm now on an apprenticeship which also provides me with 2 level 3 qualifications.)
Second of all, I know that most of the course is completed through distance learning, but the site mentions "blended learning" - is that a mixture of distance learning and attending classes?
Thirdly (I suppose this kind of links with the previous question), I understand that there is this forum and another area where students can communicate, but will there be any other opportunities to actually meet other students?
And finally, what support is given to help students find work within the games industry?
Thanks for reading. Hopefully that's not too many questions!
