Some seriously clever people in India. Never underestimate your intellectual lineage.

I would say so I have heard if there are no game specific courses in India you *might* want to think about doing a computer science degree and learn game specific code on the side yourself.

That way your career options are broadened to both games and general software. Your parents might be more agreeable with this too. Just have a think.

I'm sure if you get good grades in your studies you could study at University in England.

I came out of High school 10+2 with an aggregate of 91% can i get admission in england universities which of them are best the education in my locality was not much better i have to go around my city for nice education so its ok even its other country if the courses are worth

and thanks a lot for helping me

Anytime mate. 91% will get you in anywhere I think. Any/all of the major UK universities do computer science I think, Liverpool, Manchester, London, Sheffield etc...

Beware London though it's quite expensive to live there. Good place mind.

Just google say "Liverpool University" or "Sheffield University" for example.

4)"Best" is subjective. Only YOU can determine the "best" of anything, since YOUR criteria are unique. Read the FAQs.

That is a great aggregate. Congratulations.
Many Universities in the UK do computer science courses - however - don't many Indian Universities do them too? If you come to the UK and do a University course you are looking at yearly costs of £15,000 (including accomodation) because you are an International Student. That cost probably increases to £20,000 in London! This year I did an Industrial Placement Year as part of my University course and worked with lots of very well educated guys from India who did Computing degrees.

I agree with Gester. The tuition fees along with your average living costs is really crazy as it is. You'll be paying off your debt for a while as an international student, more likely in the excess of £30,000 or more after you've finished your course.

Unfortunately even after your degree, you'll be competing for jobs. Having a good portfolio is probably a must if you plan on getting into the games industry, but expect longer hours and probably not so good pay at the beginning.

Compare the costs for the universities in India with the universities abroad. As someone said, Computer Science is your best bet. Even if you don't get into the games industry, you want to skill up and gain experience. Things like estimates, prioritisation, designing scalable code and working with industry standard tools are shared across the board.
