Ukie Student Conference North Returns

The Ukie Student Conference will return to Staffordshire University this year on October 25th. 

Now in its fourth year the conference is a fantastic opportunity for Ukie's student members to attend exclusive talks and workshops from industry insiders from all areas of the sector, learning about different career paths and what it will take to build a successful career in games. 

Last year's conference saw over 250 students and lecturers gather to hear talks from over 20 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're thrilled to have speakers from TT Games, Hutch Games, Pixel Toys, Xiotex Studios, Creative Assembly, Raw Fury and Exient coming to the conference to share their experiences breaking into and building successful careers in the games sector with the next generation of industry talent.

Amiqus will be holding an all-day drop in centre for students to help them prepare themselves for the job market. They’ll be on volunteering their time to give one-to-one advice on career paths, CVs, portfolios and job applications, and much more. Students are encouraged to bring CVs and work portfolios along to the conference to make the most of this unique opportunity to get personalised industry feedback.
