Students are highly encouraged and supported to take an additional year at level 6 to gain their bachelors degree, which would further increase prospects of employment and could lead to opportunities for further study at MSc or even PhD. Job roles in industry are always changing, but the students might chose to aim for 3D modeller, animator, web designer, Video editor, CGI artist, games programmer or architectural visualiser.
Local media and game studios regularly offer opportunities for both paid and voluntary work. Students are encouraged and supported in seeking work experience, either for the summer or one day a week for several weeks. Recent examples include working with flight simulator artists and fire brigade training simulators.
