What would you like to study?


Esports is arguably the most thrilling course that we have at Hopwood Hall College. If you’re the type of person who’s into competitive gaming and dreams of turning this passion into a career, then you’d be absolutely perfect to study this pathway.

The course is taught at our Rochdale Campus in Greater Manchester. The Esports suites here are cutting edge, complete with modern seating, software and programmes. The space also features optimum lighting to improve performance and bring out the best in you.

You’ll instantly become a member of the college’s official Esports team, the Hopwood Hawks, where you’ll game alongside like-minded people and compete against other colleges. This is just one of the ways that each day will be different and memorable.

The wide range of transferable skills that you’ll pick up along the way will be invaluable when it comes to increasing your employment prospects. This could be in a range of fields – including, of course, the booming Esports industry.

In addition, Esports recently received a huge seal of approval when a pilot event took place at the Commonwealth Games in 2022. It’s just a small taste of what’s to come for anyone who’s looking to enter the industry.
