FAQ

What courses do we offer?

Past courses include Gameplay Development, Analytics, QA, UX/UI Design, 2D/3D Design, Motion Design, and Visual Effects, but are not limited to this.

Who can participate in the courses?

We invite students, recent graduates, and reskilled specialists who have decided to change their career paths and have studied either through non-formal courses or on an individual basis.

Participants can partake in courses from anywhere in the world. However, if they show good results and are invited for an internship, they should be able to do so onsite in either Czech Republic, Lithuania, or Nicosia.

Please note that while we are excited to sponsor candidates for future training course cohorts, we will not be able to sponsor right-to-work in the key locations mentioned.

What do we expect from applicants?

Motivation, eagerness to learn, good English language skills, and enthusiasm for working in a game dev company.

Do we ask for experience?

Sometimes. To complete the test task and pass the selection for certain courses, you will need some technical skills and experience.

When do the courses start?

We organize courses twice per year—in fall and spring.

For fall, the application period starts at the end of August or early September, with the courses starting in October.

For spring, the application period starts in February, with the courses starting in March.

How long do the courses last?

They last 2.5–3 months.

What to expect?

Experienced trainers, supportive classmates, top-notch training, practical tasks, community building activities.

Do I have to pay for the course?

Our training courses are free of charge but of limited access. After you graduate from the training course, you can apply for a paid internship at Wargaming.

When and where are the courses?

Courses are organized online. Some classes are recorded, and participants can view them at a convenient time. There are also live online meetings with trainers organized in the evenings (Central or Eastern European time). You would be expected to devote 10 to 15 hours per week to studying the material and completing the homework.

What does the selection process look like?

It depends on the courses, but it normally includes filling out the application form, a homework task, and a video interview or call with the recruiter or experts, if needed.

What happens after the courses?

By the end of a course, the best-performing participants will get an offer from us to join an internship program, so keep up the good work, and we will make sure you keep growing with us!

Also, note that even if you do not get an internship offer after the course, you can still be part of the community through the Alumni club (link to more info). We constantly keep in touch with our alumni, organize extra knowledge-sharing sessions, and share recent company news and relevant job offers.

Do I need to provide a cover letter?

It is optional. Also, check the application form first—there might already be some motivational questions. If there aren’t any, your cover letter will most often take the shape of a video interview on the platform.

How many courses can I apply for?

If you think you can be a UX/UI designer, 3D artist, and software engineer all at once, sure, no limit there. But please, have reasoning prepared as to why you applied to each specific course.

When should I expect a reply?

You should get some sort of reply in up to ~2 weeks after finalizing your course registration. If you did not, check first whether our email did not get lost in your spam. If still nothing, feel free to ping us!
