DMU Student Bags Indian Internship With Ubisoft

31 Jul 2011

DMU Student Bags Indian Internship With Ubisoft Laura Hutton, a 22 year old second year student at De Montford University, has earned the opportunity to undergo an internship with Ubisoft, a leading gaming company.

The six month internship will take place at Maharashtra in India and will start in October this year.

Ubisoft is the company behind famous video games such as Assassin’s Creed, Petz, Imagine and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six. Their gaming portal attracts five million unique visitors every month and some games sell as many as 30 million units around the world. Earlier this month, the company announced first quarter sales of over €103 million.

Laura is studying Game Art Design at De Montford University but will get some solid real life work experience at Ubisoft when she works with them on fresh adaptations of some of their older successful games titles.

“Getting an internship in this highly competitive industry is a dream come true. Working for a company like Ubisoft will give me a fantastic head start in the games industry. I am really excited about getting the opportunity to live in India for six months, and I can’t wait to work in a studio environment and find out what it is like to work on well-known titles,” said a thrilled Ms Hutton.

Laura’s course leader at De Montford University, Michael Powell, was also happy that his university had produced the first student in England to win a place on the Ubisoft internship.

“The internship with Ubisoft will greatly boost Laura’s future prospects – internships are a fantastic way to develop real professional experience. Gaining it in the face of intense competition is further proof that De Montfort University produces some of the best future game artists in the world,” said Mr Powell.
