eSports Academy

If you are a keen participant in online, multiplayer video games then the eSports Academy would be for you. Our award-winning Games Development team will help you hone your skills and prepare you for national and international tournaments.

What can I expect?

An initial round of open invitation try outs in our Games Dev suite will be your first step towards joining a College squad, with different teams that specialise in specific online titles. You may want to practice your sniper skills in Counter Strike, deck build in Hearthstone or jump into the thick of it in Overwatch.

The eSports Academy will join competitions based on the skills of each year's squad and will give you the chance to represent the College in a game that challenges and excites you.

Develop skills such as communication, leadership, strategic thinking, problem-solving and decision making, as well as crucial IT and cyber skills. 

Working in tandem with the British eSport Council, we hope to create a team that will snatch trophies and give you a rewarding experience with like-minded students. Wednesday afternoons will be strategy and practice sessions with tournaments taking place at different times throughout the term, with potential trips to National finals depending on your success.
