In September, we launched our first ever esports enrichment classes that saw over 50 students sign up to compete against other colleges in the British Esports Association. Students have started off with League of Legends, Overwatch and Rocket League and no doubt will see many more new titles in the future. Congratulations to second year BTEC student Ethan Watkins who came up with the winning design for the new QMC Esports logo! (pictured above)
QMC will now build on the popularity of these events, in conjunction with increased team building and coaching roles by the students, to help foster a team spirit in the competitions. James Fraser-Murison (Director of Learning for the Creative Arts) commented "The gaming industry currently makes more income for the UK than both the film and music industry combined and we are proud to be able offer this exciting and contemporary course for our students."
