The component, which can be studied as a Minor (25%) or Joint (50%) subject, can be studied in the below combinations and offers a distinctive multidisciplinary provision in the study of interactive audiovisual media.
The School of the Arts offers facilities to support both the theoretical and technical study of game design. These facilities include:

- iMac suites – the workstations in these suites have a range of game-related software, including Unity (game engine), FMOD (middleware for game sound and music), and Blender (modelling and animation).
