Featured: Esports at Morley

In recent years, the world of Esports has exploded into the mainstream, captivating audiences worldwide with its blend of competition, entertainment and technological innovation.

At Morley, we recognise the potential of this industry and are proud to offer Esports courses designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in this dynamic field.

What is Esports?

Our Esports courses provide students with a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the exciting world of competitive gaming.

Through a combination of hands-on experience and theoretical study, students learn to navigate the complex landscape of Esports production, mastering key skills such as project management, broadcasting and streaming, shoutcasting, and social media management.

As our industry connections continue to grow, students are actively engaged in live esports productions, preparing them for a wide range of roles within the industry.

“I recommend that everyone dives into the world of Esports with our course at Morley. The course and college have helped me level up my skills, conquer the virtual arena, and have been a second home for me for the last two years.” said one Esports student based at Chelsea.

Misconceptions and opportunities

The UK’s esports industry is valued at £1.5 billion, making it a significant player in the global scene. Nearly a third of young people aged 16 to 24 in the UK are interested in esports. Among European countries, the UK ranks third in terms of esports market size, following Germany and France. 

Despite the rapid growth of the Esports industry, there are still many misconceptions surrounding it. One common misconception is that studying Esports is solely about playing games…whereas in truth, there is a significant focus on the importance of communication, teamwork, and skill development.

These transferable skills translate into future potential…and opportunities within the Esports industry are vast and diverse. From players and coaches to PR executives and product managers, there is a role for individuals of all interests and skill sets.

Morley’s Esports provision prepares students for success in any number of roles, positioning them as prime candidates for the exciting career opportunities that lie ahead.
