There's actually a college in Canada that specializes in game development and has had a partnership with Nintendo for years. Nintendo may be run by control freaks, but they're businessmen first, and they know careers don't last forever...

When the Playstation was new, some universities in England and one in Sweden were offering courses where they used Sony hardware. However I don't remember if they used Yaroze kits or professional devkits.

Now, if Nintendo would only figure out how to make their kits piracy-proof and start selling them to everyone..
