THEY are of­ten ac­cused of do­ing lit­tle else but play com­puter games. But now stu­dents at the UK’s Univer­sity of Chich­ester can say it is a vi­tal part of their course­work.

The col­lege is of­fer­ing a three-year de­gree in E-sports stud­ies. Stu­dents, who will pay fees of more than $50,000, will be re­quired to play FIFA, Coun­terStrike, and League of Le­gends as part of the de­gree. Cam­paign for Real Ed­u­ca­tion chair Chris McGovern said: ‘Th­ese uni­ver­si­ties are se­duc­ing stu­dents into join­ing their courses as a money-mak­ing racket.”
