UWTSD hosts the Swansea Animation Days (SAND) events annually where students have the opportunity to network with and attend talks from industry representatives in the fields of game development, animation, VFX and film production.

The CCGD teaching staff have industry links to companies such as Media Molecule, Fusebox Games, Talespinners, Kiss Publishing, Wales Interactive, Electronic Arts, Cartoon Network, Lucasarts, Blizzard and United Front 

Staff also have industry experience at indie development and AAA level production which directly feeds into teaching strategies and delivery of course content.

Monthly Games Wales events are also open to students to attend, taking place in Cardiff and are attended by local industry and academic representatives.
