iMedia Games Design




2 Years (full course)

Next Start Date

September 2023

This pre-enrolment course has been designed to introduce you to the Cambridge Creative iMedia (Games Design) distance learning course with TeachAllAboutIt. As the course has changed significantly for September 2022 onwards, we require all students to complete this introduction course before enrolling in the full course.

The introduction content in here will introduce you to each unit, exam board advice, and what you need to do as a distance learner to complete the course. Please scroll down to access the taster lessons!

Important Note: The Updated OCR Specification for September 2022 changed significantly to the previous course. Due to the coursework units, we are unable to offer this without live classes.

How you’ll Learn

For the first half term of each unit, you’ll access the course using a week by week set of video and written lessons, supported by a weekly live lesson to help you understand and practice the topic.

After this, you’ll spend the second half term of each coursework unit completing your e-Portfolio and coursework with supervision during each live lesson. For the final exam unit, this second half term includes help with revision and a mock exam.

What Can I Do Next?

As the OCR Nationals are formally recognised as GCSE equivalent qualifications by the JCQ, most colleges will accept these as part of your college application.

Students may go on to A Level Media Studies, Apprenticeships in Digital Media, Cambridge Technicals in IT or Digital Media, or UAL Level 3 Games Design.

Study Hours

You should expect to spend approximately 3 – 4 hours each week on this course over the 32 weeks per year. 1 hour of this will be in your live lesson with the other two working independently.

Marking & Feedback

You will have two large coursework assignments as part of this course. Alongside this, weekly assignments are set to help you prepare for each unit which will be marked and returned to you with feedback from your tutor.

Fees & Exams

The course includes everything needed to complete the course aside from exam entry fees. We are currently partnered with Tutors & Exams.
