The Grads In Games Awards are back for their third year, celebrating the work of students, academics and studios to improve employability across the games industry.
There are only a few days left to get your nominations in — show your appreciation for those who have been a positive influence for the next generation of gamedevs!
The award-winning Grads In Games initiative has launched its activities for the 2019/20 academic year. Signups are now open for our university careers events, and for our student gamedev challenges.
This September Ukie will be holding our first ever Members Day on Wednesday 4th September at the Barbican Centre in central London.
We will be bringing together all of our valued members to enjoy a fun, business focused series of activities. These will provide insight, support our members, and give you the chance to shape future Ukie projects. Pick and choose which portions you’d like to attend – or come along to them all.
