News: Kaitlin pursues game design dreams

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

Eighteen year-old Kaitlin Kelly from Bilborough joined Nottingham College to study Level 3 Games Design after her GCSEs. She says that despite being nervous, it actually helped with her anxiety, and she is now going to university.

At first, Kaitlin was was concerned about what it might be like on the course, but she has since gone from strength to strength!

Speaking about her time at Nottingham College, Kaitlin said: “I was nervous as I suffer from anxiety, but I pushed myself to come and I’m really glad I did! It’s actually helped me. The tutors are really helpful.”

Kaitlin showcased her work at the Nottingham College end of year student Media show earlier this year. She said:

“We’ve had the freedom to do a project that we want to, and I chose to focus on a 2D game to represent old arcade games and the ‘Easter egg’ surprises at the end. My game is called Penguin Dash, and it’s aimed at all ages from the age of three.

“I would definitely 100% recommend the Games Design course at Nottingham College. The tutors are really helpful and they teach in a way that you can learn from them, but then also gain independence. I think this prepares you for the real world.

"I’ll be really sad to leave the course, but I’m going on to the University of Derby to study 3D modelling and animation.”
