    Hey there!

    I'm thinking of applying to one of the courses titled above (so the 'Independent Games Production' and 'Games Development' courses) as of 2017 but felt that I didn't have enough info about the course itself and how people felt the course was so I've come here hoping someone can help me!

    I was hoping you could tell me what you think/thought of the course, what was good, what wasn't so good, would you recommend it etc. as well as give me some information about the courses themselves. What did you study? What sorts of things did you look in-depth at? Did it all feel relevant?

    I was also curious as to how much knowledge you had at the beginning of the course and whether that felt necessary or more of a bonus on your part? For example, I currently have no coding knowledge and haven't much in the way of a portfolio that could showcase my abilities (part of the reason I'm applying in 2017 so I can build up the skills I need). Would you say I'm at a disadvantage or would struggle to do well with the courses as a result of this? Or does the course account for this and you spend time learning some programming/coding basics together with the expectation to learn more on the side of the rest of your studies?

    Any info you can give me would really help, thanks in advance!
