Study Esports with us to develop sector-specific knowledge as well as transferable skills that employers value. You will learn about gaming organisations, teamwork, wellbeing, event planning and match streaming. Further study at higher levels will provide understanding of coaching teams, strategies, analysis and tactics, enterprise and entrepreneurship and the psychology of esports. You will be given the opportunity to play as part of a competitive team and enter tournaments and learn in high specification gaming facilities with the latest hardware to enable competitive play to a professional level.
I chose CAVC because of the easy access it has given me to the specialist facilities; the library and all the support I have received from the teachers. Also, the opportunities it has given me to now see where I will be in a few years’ time.
I have found the teachers on the Esports course have been amazing. All the teachers are always looking forward for us, to see the best route for us in the future. My highlight of the course has been meeting likeminded people, who like Esports; but also meeting the team from Esports Wales, when they competed in the College. We had the opportunity to meet the players of the games and also understand how the processes work in the industry.
After finishing this course I’m hoping to go to study Esports at a University level. I’m hoping from University I will be employed in the industry in any aspect. On the course we cover a multitude of units. This year we are covering events, the psychology of esports, coaching and nutrition. People just think it is gaming but it is so much more than that.
