Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get a degree in a fraction of the time it normally takes? The One Hour Degree game has been produced specifically for students who are about to join or have recently begun their degree journey at Kent.
It is a narrative based adventure game which simulates all the significant elements of gaining a degree condensed into one hour.
This game lets you make choices and see the effects of your actions in many different university scenarios. The story line was however written before COVID-19, so things like social distancing and online lectures haven’t been taken into account. It’s still a valuable resource as it’ll help you get a feel of the vast array of support and advice available to you at Kent that you can still access and it’s something that has not changed.
The One Hour Degree recently won the Guardian University Award 2020 for Digital Innovation so be sure to check it out!
There are five independent ‘quests’ focused on Welcome Week, the first term, the first year, year 2 and year 3. The game introduces key facilities, support networks and social opportunities that are available at Kent as well as displaying stunning imagery of our parkland campus.
Players will earn ‘knowledge’ and ‘wellbeing’ points along the way as well as a badge for each completed quest. Together they will dictate the classification of the ‘degree’ received at the end before you have the opportunity to be part of your very own graduation video. With more than 100 million unique pathways through the game, you can easily choose a different story path each time to see how different decisions result in different outcomes.
The game does not require a login or user account and can be played by anyone who has access to a web browser, on any device.
