So you want to break into the video game industry (you want a game biz job). First, you have to know which type of job you want -- if you don't know which you want, you need to read about the game industry and the types of jobs in it. Then you might need to make a decision. Third, you need to be qualified for the job. Fourth, you need to know how to find information and how to ask good questions (you need to not ask bad questions). Finally, we have tips for getting the job.
Hello, Harry. Your post has been moved to the Breaking In forum. There are FAQs you should read here. Back out to the forum's main page, and look for the link at upper right. First you have to choose a specialty, then there's an FAQ on degrees for specialties, and information on how to choose a university (we Americans say "college").

This is only game making. First year artwork + programming work is together. Second year they split up. Artists and programmers section. It's very hard though.
By the way... Playing video games and writing video games is NOT the same. For our course we are with 300 students at the start of the school year. Only around 30 students passes and 70 others failed. Meaning 200students has left before academic year ended.
