UK educational establishment launches e-sports courses

Staffordshire University, located in Stoke-on-Trent, England, has just launched e-sports-focused undergraduate and masters courses. At a hefty price o 9,250£ a year, students can enroll to learn more about the inner workings of the e-sports industry. With a strong curricular focus on the business of e-sports, hosting and promoting events, as well as managing online communities, the course is one of the first of its kind in Great Britain.

The degree, taking three years to complete, will require students to organise a gaming expo as their final assignment (in lieu of the more traditional written thesis). The course itself has the backing MP Ed Vaizey, the vice chairman of the British eSports Association.
