While eSports are on the rise as a competitive discipline, associating with videogames would still seem slightly heterodox on most college applications.
This said, controlled participation at an early age can demonstrate abilities from teamwork and the ability to perform under pressure all the way to strategic planning in certain circumstances; there are also various technical skills to be picked up.
Málaga's GamerCamp offers introductory experiences in videogame development, digital design and streamed content production, activities which may inform valuable aspects of academic work such as creative writing and presentation structuring.
The camp is affiliated to EVAD, Andalusia's leading tertiary education institution for videogames and the digital arts.
