    Most of our Games Technology students are male, 18 – 21, and they’ve come straight to us from school or college.
    There isn’t a lot of experience at our institution with running Distance Learning Courses, especially not undergraduate courses.
    While the UK has a strong tradition of distance learning with the Open University – they concentrate on more traditional subjects.
    So that’s us, it’s nice to meet you all!
