Blitz Games Studios has opened registration for its Student Open Days in 2012.
Students who want a career in gaming or animation can attend the open days to get a glimpse of the gaming world and ask developers for hints and tips.
Blitz run the open days every year to encourage students to enter the world of games development. The open days will offer an insight into the range of skills and talents involved in creating games.
Students from all courses are welcome to register. It’s not only those taking gaming courses, but graduates from Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science and others are all used to create games in the industry.
