I'm in my second year of studying Game Art at university and I have the opportunity to do a placement year in industry.
Unfortunately I've had no luck after a month of checking job sites, advertisements and studio websites, as well as my own universities Placement recourses and emailing individual companies myself to enquire about possible placement opportunities!So far I've only gathered the following:
Studios I confirmed that offer no placements, only work experience, only graduate schemes or are in the wrong area of study:
- Rare - advertisements are usually put out in December
- Sumo Digital - they may start advertising in November?
- Climax Studios - has been said to keep an eye on their socials for any updates
- Playground Games
- Creative Assembly
- TT Games
- Splash Damage
- Two Point Studios
So I'm wondering if anyone has any tips or experience with finding student placements?
I realise they're quite Rare (haha funny)
but I'm really set on doing a placement and I believe I have the skills to be accepted!TLDR: does anyone know of any game studios offering student placements in the UK?
