Torrens University’s Media Design School in Australia has announced that it has been accredited by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe to its PlayStation First Academic Development Programme. Torrens joins the Academy of Interactive Entertainment who had their course accredited back in 2013.
The acceptance into the program means that the University will gain access to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita development kits to use when educating their students.
Darryn Melrose, chief executive of the Media Design School said
This new endorsement from Sony PlayStation offers our students the opportunity to develop games for the PlayStation platform and is clear evidence of industry recognising the quality of our programs of study.
Torrens’ New Zealand campus had already been accepted in 2016, something that Melrose described as having “a huge success.” From the course, a new development studio called Rainbite was formed by a group of third-year students.
If you are interested in taking the course, enrolments are open for the course which commences on the 5th June at the University’s Sydney and Brisbane campuses.
