Ukie Student Conference 'breaks down barriers' between education and industry
Staffordshire University opened the doors of their Epic Games Centre for the Second Annual Ukie Student Conference last week, in partnership with Epic Games, PlayStationFirst and Flix Interactive. Twenty-eight speakers from all areas of the games industry spoke to over 185 students from across the country, covering topics such as career paths, start-ups, game development, creative business thinking, PR, community management, game art and game audio, among many others.

The free one-day conference, held at Staffordshire University, will bring together over 200 students and alumni to hear about the games industry and pursuing their dream career.
