All students at PlaygroundSquad enter into a six-month internship at a real-life game studio, learning the nitty-gritty of game development from the pros.
Your final six months at PlaygroundSquad consist of an internship at a game development studio in Sweden or abroad. You will become part of a development team working on live commercial projects at the studio, applying the skills you have learned in school and experiencing professional game development first-hand.
Kickstart your career
The courses at PlaygroundSquad will teach you skills and theoretical knowledge in your field of choice. The game projects will teach you how to collaborate with teammates across disciplines. However, your internship is where the magic truly happens. As an intern, you will get an authentic taste of game development professionally, making the final transition from a student to an experienced game developer.
More than 80% of our graduates work in the game industry within six months of graduating. The internship is an excellent stepping stone for your future career as a game developer. Many students secure jobs during their internships and stay at their studios after graduation. In contrast, others use their newfound skills and ever-growing network of contacts to find a new home at one of Sweden's many game companies.
Freedom to choose
We at PlaygroundSquad help facilitate contact between students and industry professionals in various ways, but ultimately you as a student have more control over your fate than you might think.
Throughout your time at PlaygroundSquad, you will be free to develop and focus on the skills and areas of expertise you wish to build your career. You'll be able to build up a body of work and a portfolio to show off your particular brand of awesome. Demonstrate the right style, skills, and sensibilities in your portfolio, and who knows - you might just land that internship of your dreams at your favourite studio.
