"Play is a voluntary activity or occupation executed within certain fixed limits of time and place, according to rules freely accepted but absolutely binding having its aim in itself and accompanied by a feeling of tension, joy and the consciousness that it is 'different' from 'ordinary life'."
Johan Huizinga, Homo Ludens

What is the BA Games Design Course structure?

Simply put the course covers three main areas of activity;
Drawing
This ranges from sketching as an aid to creative thinking to develop initial ideas' to the production of finished concept art for publication.
Digital modelling and Animation
This covers the game specific requirements for developing digital assets for games.
Game Mechanic Design
Thinking of scenarios and subjects for games can be easy, but developing the mechanics, rules and methods by which a game is delivered is a complex task specific to the discipline.
