Blitz Games Studios has set the dates and opened registration for its 2012 student Open Days in Leamington Spa.
The three open days will take place on March 2, 23 and 30 next year.
"Not only are we offering students from many different disciplines the chance to visit a successful games studio and talk to real game developers about what they do and how they do it," said senior events and education coordinator Kim Blake.
"It's also a great way to publicise the fantastic work produced by the creative industries in the UK and the importance of next gen skills to the UK economy."
The March 2 and 23 dates are aimed at students in their second and finals years with an interest in 2D and 3D art, animation, audio, design and programming.
March 30 will be aimed at those interested in design and programming, and is open to students in any year of university.
"The challenges of game design have recently become more exciting and varied than ever before, with the advent of new control inputs in particular demanding ever greater creative responses," said John Nash, studio design director.
"As more people want to play a bigger range of games on an ever-growing of number platforms, we need a new generation of imaginative, practical and flexible Designers to help us create the very best in future entertainment."
The open days will feature a studio tour and a chance for students to speak directly to developers.
Students can register at the official site and they'll then be asked to submit a piece of work to win their spot at the event.
Closing date for submission is January 9.
