For the past two weeks, we've been publishing a series of articles and videos aimed at students, designed to offer insight on life in the games industry and advice on how to get into the business – all under the banner of our Get into Games special.

The full series, sponsored by Wrexham University, can be found below, covering everything from how to get into certain fields (such as voice acting, art and video game production) to advice on going through the jobs application process.

Each of the articles is based on a talk from the Academy Zone at EGX 2023 and you can watch the full discussions, either in the article or on the YouTube channel.

The Academy will continue publish advice on how to level up your career and find your place in the games industry via the 'Working in games' section.
