Applications are now open for the Games Development and VFX Academy! 

Both academies will be running for 12 weeks starting in January through to March. 

Participants will learn about the different aspects of creating a game or designing VFX shots, mentored by professionals who work in these Creative Industries. This is an exciting opportunity to hear more from our industry professionals and get a feel for what the Games or VFX industry is like in Northern Ireland.
