Hello mate,

There are a bunch of courses at different universities in the UK, i'm currently looking to apply in september.

http://www.ucas.com -> course search -> topic and choose Game then select view all game degrees

I don't know how good they are I think it's just going to be picking the university course you like the sound of best and the area you like the look of.

I have a friend who just finished the course at Abertay (Dundee) and he said it was ok, apparently there is 1 amazing lecturer there and few good ones and the rest are a bit of a waste of time.

He also said that he learnt enough to know he hadn't learnt enough if that makes sense.

Anyway good luck with whatever or whereever you choose :D

Isn't that true for most universities? ;)

That was certainly true for Teesside University way back when I was there.
