Learn project-based courses without exams
The game design course is far more interested in you perfecting your skills rather than an exam score. All the work you will do is project based in the Unreal Engine and other industry standard software. During your time on the course as well as designing a game you will have to really make it and get others to play it, break it and you fix it until it is perfect!
