Applications are now open for the next round of The Games Hub – hurray!

If you’ve got an idea for a computer game or app that you want to develop, we offer the training and space to make that possible. As well as learning about games and development from some of the biggest names in the industry, on our programme you also learn about turning this into a career from experts in the business world. This is a unique, free course that can help you to develop and launch your games.

The course runs from October 2017 until May 2018, and is based on the University of Essex campus in Colchester, Essex.

We want to hear from all aspiring games and app developers who are interested – so why not read more about how to apply?

AppBox Media

We’re immensely pleased and proud to be partnering with AppBox Media for this round. Thanks to them, we’re going to be able to provide our teams with some much-needed PC hardware.

The new kit will open up the programme to those who don’t have access to their own PC, and will help our teams to keep developing fresh, fantastic new games. With the new Vive VR kit, there’s a whole new world of app and games development available.

The sponsorship from AppBox is also going to open up some exciting new opportunities – including two joint ‘hackathons’ between AppBox and The Games Hub, and the chance for our teams to win up to £3,000 for their mobile games.

The APPrentice competition

As part of our joint venture with AppBox, The Games Hub’s talented teams will be able to submit entries to AppBox’s APPrentice competition. This competition aims to discover some of the best young talent in games development, and any participants in The Games Hub programme are able to enter.

The current competition has closed, but the next competition will be open to participants in the next round of The Games Hub.
