TIGA UK Games Education Awards 2021 aim to promote outstanding students, education providers and best practice
“The UK video games industry depends on a highly skilled workforce and cutting edge research, both of which are provided by higher education. TIGA now wants to strengthen the relationship between industry and higher education via our TIGA UK Games Education Awards 2021. Our TIGA UK Games Education Awards will recognise outstanding students; the best education providers and studios; and good practices, such as excellence in diversity.
“The global pandemic has resulted in difficulties for many students in terms of anxiety, loneliness and isolation. The TIGA UK Games Education Awards 2021 will help to reward and recognise student achievements in what has proven to be a highly challenging year.
— Dr Richard Wilson OBE, TIGA CEO
