Case Study

Jim Edginton

FdA Independent Game Development

I’m 30 years old and I’ve worked within a forensic psychiatric setting since I was 18 and never really considered doing anything else. However, I saw an opportunity to study this course and thought I’d give it a go! While there’s obviously an academic spin on everything, the course is run like a workplace environment where tasks are set so I learn how to do things for myself.

What Jim had to say...

I’m 30 years old and I’ve worked within a forensic psychiatric setting since I was 18 and never really considered doing anything else. However, I saw an opportunity to study this course and thought I’d give it a go! While there’s obviously an academic spin on everything, the course is run like a workplace environment where tasks are set so I learn how to do things for myself.

I’ve found this way of teaching incredibly beneficial, and although I’m still in my first year here, I already feel a lot more confident when working on tasks and not just the particular areas that pique my interest most. I’m looking forward to a fruitful future in the industry.

If I keep learning at this rate, I’ll have all the skills I need to set up and maintain my own independent brand, or if I applied to an established studio then I’ll be leaving this course with a strong portfolio of work.
