The Ukie Student Conference will be launching for the first time ever down south as part of the London Games Festival!
Hosted at London South Bank University on April 5th the conference is a fantastic opportunity for students to attend exclusive talks and workshops from industry insiders from all areas of the sector. They'll have the chance to learn all about different career paths and what it will take to build a successful career in games.
Last year's conference saw over 200 students and lecturers gather to hear talks from over 25 big names in the industry, covering creative game design, emerging business models, PR and player strategy, as well as individuals sharing their experiences working in the UK games sector.
We have talks with Creatively Assembly, Multiplay, Epic Games, OPM jobs, Playstack and many more! They’ll be covering everything from games art and programming and to getting a job in the industry, eSports and VR.
We will also have our first ever mini expo including OPM Response and Creative Assembly giving students one on one time with the industry speakers after the talks.
OPM Response will be holding an all-day drop in centre for students to help them prepare themselves for the job market. They’ll be on hand to help students improve their CV’s, portfolios and online presence as well as give them top tips on interview techniques!
Tickets to the conference are FREE for Ukie students. Lunch and refreshments are provided for attendees.
This event is kindly supported by Epic Games, OPM Response, Creative Assembly, Games London and London South Bank University.
