So you want a career in computer games tournaments?

Staffordshire students learning how to run an e-sports event

“The world is my oyster at this point,” says Danielle Morgan, a third year e-sports student at Staffordshire University.

Ms Morgan will be one of the first students in the world to graduate with such a degree, as her university was the first to offer this course in the UK.

It is not just about playing computer games, it is also designed to provide skills that are needed across an industry which organises tournaments all over the world.

“It’s very business-oriented, with a focus on everything from marketing, legislation and finances, to events management, strategy and content creation,” she says.
