What to look at when choosing a university for video game programming?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am looking for a university at the moment and I have no idea where to start.

I am mainly looking for a uni in any English-speaking country, preferably outside the UK. I am going to pursue a degree in Computer Science. As far as I know teachers are the main criteria of how good is the specific course or uni, but what else should I look at? Do modules change in different universities or are they basically the same? Are there any universities specialising just on Computer Science?

Please help [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png[/img]

Mafia Don, you should make a decision grid based on a short list of universities. See [url="http://sloperama.com/advice/lesson25.htm"]FAQ 25[/url].
And there are other relevant FAQ links in this forum's FAQs. Back out to the forum main page, and look for the FAQ link at upper right.
