Immerse VR University Contest

Enter to win a VR headset, be selected for an internship and more…

What is the Immerse VR University Contest?

Students from participating universities will have free access to the full Enterprise version of the Immerse SDK* to make their own VR projects and participate in a VR contest to win some great prizes to help them further their VR job opportunities.

With the current climate, VR training and learning is even more beneficial. It means that companies can continue to train workers. More importantly, some aspects of an employee’s role can continue from the safety of their home without risk to their health.

We want to help future generations learn skills to ensure that they have the best chance of gaining employment when they graduate within companies utilising VR.

If you would like to take part in the Immerse VR University Contest, and you are a student at one of our partner universities for this year, then contact your course leader to be entered.
