-[NOTE: We're also giving IndieGames.com readers a chance to respond to this because we know from our recent survey that there are a lot of regular readers who are either attending or considering attending game-related schools - please respond if you have opinions.]

The editors of Game Developer magazine, Gamasutra.com, and GameCareerGuide.com are inviting current and prospective students in University game programs to take part in the first-ever Game Developer Career Guide Student Survey.

The survey, which is anonymous, intends to discern in aggregate the types of schools that current game students are attending, the quality and breadth of the courses, and what sort of placement or support programs are in place.

The results of this survey will be included in Game Developer’s Career Guide Fall 2008 issue - due out in late July, available for purchase online, and distributed for free at major game consumer and trade shows, including Penny Arcade Expo, Austin GDC, GDC 2009, and many more shows to be announced.

Highlights of the survey, which is intended to help shape the future of game education by examining current satisfaction levels with existing tutoring, will also be available online on the Gamasutra and Game Career Guide sites following the magazine's debut.

Students, please take the time to complete the brief survey, which takes just a couple of minutes or less to fill out.
