"I worked in the Korean game industry for about 6 years. During the time, I always felt a desire of self-development, and the narrowness of the local market made me dream of studying abroad. One day in 2017, I happened to find the MA Independent Games and Playable Experience Design, which I am on now. It was fascinating, well structured and most of all, unique. I could not find any similar course in the UK.
I recieved offers from two other universities, but I chose Goldsmiths because the other courses didn't speak to me as much as this one – I had already fallen in love with it. An interview with my professor, Phoenix Perry, was also one of the key factors in choosing Goldsmiths. Her passion and research were admirable, and I really wanted to study under her.
I am now in the second month of my course, and quite sure I made good choice. Students are nice and creative, and teachers are enthusiastic. Modules and classes are fairly interesting and helpful. I want to be a stand-alone developer, and my course supports my dream so far. I feel fulfilled every week after classes and assignments, even though they make me exhausted."
