Flanders has some excellent programs to learn about game development, but virtual reality is its own special beast. To really capture the possibilities of VR AP Hogeschool Antwerpen (link in Dutch) is launching the first postgraduate on the topic of VR storytelling in Flanders.
Immersive Storytelling in Virtual Reality (link in Dutch) is a multidisciplinary program aimed at both graduates and professionals in the field of graphic design, marketing and communication, journalism, arts, languages, social sciences, informatics, game design, product design, or film and animation (so, barring dentists, pretty much anyone) who want to become expert VR storytellers.
Over the course of a year (141 hours), you’ll learn about different immersive technologies (360° video, VR and AR) and how to write custom scripts in order to create an engaging experience. Guided by experts in their field, among them Poppins & Wayne and Port of Antwerp VR hero Wim Wouters, you will be able to create your own VR prototype by the end of the program.
If this at all sounds intriguing you can find more detailed practical information here (link in Dutch). Class kicks off the first week of October, and you have until 20th September to sign up.
