VFS is one of the top 10 schools favored by video game industry recruiters, according to the Los Angeles Times, and VFS Game Design is the only one-year program included in the Princeton Review's 2012 list of Top Game Design Programs.
From visual storytelling to game audio to level design to motion capture, VFS simulates the flow of a professional studio to prepare you to be an active part of any game development team. Students at VFS have the advantage of living and creating in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Along with strong film, TV, and animation industries, Vancouver is a world center of game development with dozens of studios and companies based in this beautiful and cosmopolitan city. That means that VFS is industry-current and can provide students with the opportunity to present their final playable games to an audience of industry reps and recruiters, providing a chance to demonstrate their skills and make vital professional contacts.
The proof is in the results. Since the Game Design program's inception in 2004, graduates have gone on to work for companies around the world, on many of the industry's most celebrated games. Graduates have been hired in Designer and Producer roles at companies like BioWare, EA, Mythic, Radical, Relic, Ubisoft, Eidos, Square Enix, and Funcom, and recent credits include Mass Effect 3, Space Marine, SSX, Saints Row: The Third, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
