FAQ

What is Game Live Operations?

Game Live Operations, or LiveOps, as a discipline, lies at the heart of live services actions. It changes the player experience after the game goes live, or the game receives updates without needing to release a new version. Gone are the days when developing a game, uploading it to a platform, and enjoying life was a sustainable business model for a game with a long lifespan. LiveOps has become an integral part of any free-to-play game and must be carefully planned, starting with a design and ending with a go-to-market strategy. Games-as-a-Service transformed box games into living, organic games that are constantly evolving, and LiveOps can deliver a fresh experience to players every day.

Can I apply if I'm not based in Vilnius, Nicosia, or Prague?

Yes, you can. However, note that we will be able to offer the paid internships only to successful graduates who can legally be employed in one of those three locations.

What is needed for the video interview?

First, you will be asked four interview questions in a video. You will then need to record your answers to these questions. To record your answers, we recommend using a computer (but you can also use a smartphone or tablet) with a camera, microphone, and stable internet connection. Be sure to record in a quiet, well-lit place.

Is the course in English? Can I apply if I'm not fluent in English?

Yes, the course will be held in English. Make sure your level of English is sufficient to understand the study material and complete practical tasks.

How many hours do I need to spend studying the materials during the course?

It depends, but it can take about eight hours a week to review the tutorials and complete the practical tasks.

Will I get a certificate after finishing the course?

A course completion certificate will be issued to you if you complete the course and prepare your graduation/final project.

What do I need to do to get an internship offer?

You will need to demonstrate a high level of learning ability and receive a high grade for your graduation/final project. You should also be legally eligible to be employed in one of the countries where the company has offices (i.e., Lithuania, Cyprus, or the Czech Republic).
