Considering our educations? Watch this presentation first.
GAME is the largest department of Gotland University and the first game education in Scandinavia. In July 2013, we merge with Uppsala University – one of the oldest universities in the world (founded in 1477).
Thus, all new students will attend Uppsala University, Campus Gotland, and your diploma will be from Uppsala University.

They both span two years and yields a Foundational degree. Our intention is to have our new bachelors degree ready for 2015.
Our facilities are equipped with modern technology to ensure high quality student work. We provide the campus students with computers, office spaces and a Motion Capture studio. We also provide our students with production software such as Autodesk 3D Studio Max, Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Visual Studio for asset production and programming.
Ours is a profoundly project-oriented environment, with students working together to create actual games (digital and physical) every semester. Our skilled teachers aim at providing the students with a deep knowledge of the practical appliances of graphics, sound and programming within the field of modern game production.
We work very hard to keep our staff educated, updated and in contact with the industry. Over the years we’ve built a strong reputation and a massive international network, enabling us to invite guest lecturers from all over the world on a regular basis. Furthermore – several of our staff are also actively working in the industry.
Gotland Game Conference
Gotland University have been teaching game development for 12 years. The GGC is an annual (very public!) evaluation of our work. International industry, academia and press are invited to help scrutinize our output, hone our process and celebrate our results.
Students kick start the event with presentations of their projects; exposing themselves and the university to insightful critique from an experienced panel of industry personas.
We then proceed with a two day conference; talks on a wide range of topics are interspersed with networking on the show floor, among the student’s games.
Location and Accomodation
Located in the World Heritage city of Visby, this modern university is naturally enhanced by the rich historical and cultural atmosphere of Gotland – a unique island just off the east coast of Sweden.
Gotland is the largest island in the Baltic Sea and the sunniest province of Sweden, sporting long summers and mild autums and winters. Roughly 65 000 people lives here, and almost a third of the population lives in the city of Visby – a modern community in glorious natural surroundings, keeping it’s rich history alive through the extensive medieval remains on the island. The gotlanders (gutar) are quite used to international visitors and are – like all swedes – fluent english speakers.
Student apartments are plentiful and comes fully equipped; furniture, heating, cable TV and very fast internet connection are commonly included in the rent. For more info on living and studying in Sweden, check out Study In Sweden! For help finding a place to live see Rindi – the student union!
