    MY UNIVERSITY REVIEW

    The Uppsala University provided me a rewarding education. Their impressive technology allowed me to have hands-on experience in my major. In addition to this, the small class size also helped me to interact with the professors. Thus graduating from the Uppsala University has helped me in grooming myself. A centralized application form helped me to get into the university. The fee charged for it was SEK 900.


    Course Curriculum - 

    This bachelor's program taught me the tools to work with the game medium on a professional level. It also helped me to equip myself to develop new expressions within the field. The program specialized in producing art for game development. The program also mixed the practical game development and theoretical courses within game design and graphics. In the program, I got a chance to explore theories and methods in game design, game development, and game analysis.
