HND Computer Games

An HNC Computer Games Development has been available to centres for some time. We didn't develop a corresponding HND award because there were question marks about likely uptake. Nearly all of the HNC students progress to university degree courses (in a related area).

But I have received a small number of requests to develop an HND. Although not large in number, these requests are regular. So I plan to arrange a meeting of interested parties later this academic year (probably June) to discuss our options and to determine if there is a genuine demand for an HND award.

I'll write to centres in the next few weeks but in the meantime it would be interesting to read your views via the comment facility.

Contact Caroline for further information about Computer Games qualifications.

  1. I would welcome the introduction of an HND in Computer Games Development. However, given our experience of delivering the HNC I would hope it will include an opportunity to redesign the HNC framework.

  2. Thanks for the feedback Jim. Yes, we would consider reviewing the HNC - but only if there was sufficient demand for it. And the lack of comment here tells me that the usual low interest in this area remains.
