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.
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?
*Distance from your home, climate, proximity to game companies...
Mafia Don, you should make a decision grid based on a short list of universities. See FAQ 25. 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.
