New Gaming room at Merthyr College

Posted by John Jackson May 15, 2019 in COLLEGE

It is brilliant to see all the publicity and media coverage surrounding the new Gaming Suite at Merthyr Tydfil College. As you may be aware the new Esports/gaming suite has been created to deliver the new Level 3 Creative Media Production (Games Design and Development) course.  The project  has been supported by the Skills Priorities Programme funded by the Welsh Government.

It was a great opportunity for Esports Wales to get involved with and help promote and grow the gaming scene in Wales. We can’t wait to get involved with more projects like this and look forward to working again with the likes of bof,, noble chairs, corsair and the college Merthyr Tydfil.
