Burnout, Need for Speed dev Criterion opens its doors to students

Win work experience for the summer.

The studio behind Burnout and Need for Speed will open its doors to game developer students in April - and offer a lucky few the chance to win work experience in the summer.

EA-owned Criterion Games is holding a competition for final year A-level and first year university students interested in a career in the game industry.

To take part you need to complete an online registration form and send over your CV alongside some examples of your work. Criterion will then select 30 students to attend an open day at its Guildford Studio in April.

The student open day includes a prototype competition. A panel of judges will pick the winners who will nab the work experience in the summer.

Fancy your chances?

"As you know, one of EA's key strategies is graduate recruitment - attracting the best students from the top universities," EA said.

"The folks at Criterion Games in Guildford are committed to raising awareness of the career opportunities in games and that's way they are doing something unprecedented. For the first time ever, Criterion is opening its doors and offering a unique opportunity for final year A-level and first-year university students to win a work placement at the studio."
