I had always had a massive fascination with VR and love for it, so when I saw this degree was offered I instantly signed up. We not only learn fundamental ideas and practices; we've also had some great opportunities to develop projects and create some amazing experiences that look great on a portfolio. I had the opportunity to take the skills that I've learned and apply it on a real project for use in the public realm and this translated very well as we already had to learn basic work pipelines through the courses. In the future I want to develop VR projects that not only show the power of VR as a way to experience things, but also push the boundaries of VR itself!
