A university student is heading off to India to undertake an internship at the largest in-house games developer in the world.
Laura Hutton, a second-year game art design student at De Montford University, will spend six months with Ubisoft where she will work on new adaptations of some of the firm's most successful titles.
The 22-year-old stated that she is delighted to have secured such an interesting opportunity and will seize it with both hands.
"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," she said.
The student added that working in a studio environment and learning how a commercial organisation operates will be of huge benefit to her.
Jackie Orme, chief executive at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, said recently that internships are a good way for young people to pick up the skills needed to improve their employability.
