“International Game Architecture and Design provided a good combination suiting my interests in traditional art as well as new media and games. Another important aspect for my decision making was the fact that the International Game Architecture and Design programme is completly taught in English, which provides the necessary language skills to work in an international company. A lot of people think of Game students as guys who play video games 24/7, but this is clearly not the case. To complete the study successfully, hard work and a professional attitude are required. Because of a strict, practical intake procedure all accepted students share the same interest and passion for creating games, which allows for an inspiring working environment. All teachers are caring for their student's success, while providing challenges as well as a great deal of support. Special about International Game Architecture and Design is that it is not about learning single techniques or how to operate a piece of software but about picking up core concepts that are necessary to work in the games industry.
