Study Details

PhD 4 years Full-time

This course is a collaboration between the University of York, the University of Essex and Goldsmiths College, University of London. It will trains students as researchers, designers, developers and entrepreneurs in digital games. The doctoral programme combines practical skills training with advanced teaching in cutting-edge research topics and the chance to contribute original research to a growing academic area. Students also undertake 2 industrial placements during the programme, giving first hand industrial experience that will influence their research projects.

There are a number of EPSRC studentships available each year across all three institutions. For more information, visit the website for the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent Games and Game Intelligence (IGGI).

Entry Requirements

Applicants should have a 2.1 or higher in a discipline related to game design, development or analysis. We will consider applications from applicants with significant other relevant experience, for example working in game design. To apply for a place on the IGGI programme, you need to select a lead supervisor at one of the three institutions of Essex, Goldsmiths and York. Check the list of available IGGI supervisors across all three institutions, listed with their research interests and find those that most closely match the research you would like to undertake. If you are unable to identify a supervisor, then please check our research themes to see if your proposed research sits within one of these areas.
If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to. For more information, see:
