NSE X HOST Partnership Announcement


last week

We've partnered with HOST, the Home of Skills & Technology, to provide valuable career pathways into technology and also deliver more esports events for UK university students.

The partnership will see us working closely with HOST, helping to enrich student experiences at university and prepare them for life afterwards. The recently announced NARAKA: BLADEPOINT University Invitational will also be held at HOST’s state-of-the-art facilities.

Mo Isap, CEO of IN4 Group, operator of HOST, said:
“We are delighted to join forces with NSE and ensure that all university students have fair access to the many opportunities that this industry is providing. Gaming and esports continues to be one of the fastest-growing sectors, but these skills are in huge demand across the whole economy too.’’

Alex Coulson, Managing Director at NSE said:
“In addition to the British University Esports Championship, and all the community esports and gaming activity we run, we want to offer UK university students more value and opportunities by being a part of our community. The students are always our number one priority and we want to help them now and in their future careers, so working with the team at HOST is a natural evolution for us.”

Simon Benson, Director of Immersive Technology at HOST said:
“Technology continues to be a driving force in society and we hope that this partnership will break some of the barriers that students may find themselves with when getting into the industry. With the right support, students immersed in esports and gaming are ideally placed to find a career in technology in any sector they choose”

Lauren Monks, Director of Careers Education Programmes at HOST said:
“We are aiming to evolve our offering and connect those who are in need of guidance with key opportunities and pathways to their future careers in technology.”
