We’re Gold!

Amazing news as Nottingham Trent University have been rated Gold in the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework. This means that if you choose to study a degree at Confetti, you’ll be part of an institution recognised nationally for its outstanding teaching and learning. Check out the full tables here.

The TEF has been introduced to recognise and reward excellent teaching in order to better inform student choices about what and where to study. NTU is one of just 59 universities, colleges and other providers in the UK to receive the highest gold rating from the 295 that have taken part.

Industry Week 2017

Each year we go off timetable for a week of workshops, lectures and masterclasses, delivered by top names from across Film, TV, Music and Games. As part of this year’s exclusive Industry Week we’ve had workshops with award-winning documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield, a performance from world renowned DJ – DJ Yoda and advice from PlayStation Community Manager Hollie Bennett! This really is a one of a kind event, exclusive to Confetti students!

Check out our Industry Week highlights here.

NTU

We’re part of Nottingham Trent University which means you get the best of both worlds, the experience of working in a close-knit creative community and the benefits of being a student at one of the country’s biggest universities.

This year students have given the university a 89% satisfaction rating in the National Student Satisfaction Survey, the fifth highest score amongst mainstream universities. That score puts the University in the top ten of all 145 institutions included, an improvement of 16 places on last year.

As a Confetti student you have full access to the Nottingham Trent Students’ Union. This means you can get social and be part of the events taking place in their 2,400 event space, as well as the numerous bars and cafés. Why not join one of NTU’s 70 societies and sports clubs?

You’ll also be able to live in NTU’s accommodation which comes with some pretty great benefits but best of all, accept us as your firm offer and it’s guaranteed!

Degree Showcase

During our Degree Showcase we throw open our doors to family, friends and industry leaders to show off our degree students’ work. We really go to town to make it a special event and as day turns to night we bring out the champers for our Degree Awards – check out what we got up to this year.

Confetti Christmas Nightmare

At Confetti you’ll be part of a community full of talented, inspirational creatives. Studying alongside students with the same goals means instant squad! We’ve seen loads of our students start their own businesses with classmates. So not only will you study with friends, work with our tutors on high profile projects but you’ll generally have a great time being part of a creative community.

We also know how to party! Last year we took over Nottingham’s super cool Broad Street for Fresh, our Christmas parties are legendary and DJ Yoda just played our Industry Week after show party, need we say more?

Life in Nottingham

Nottingham is home to some brilliant music venues, cinemas, independent shops and festivals – the city is electric! We take to the streets to party for loads of events including Dot to Dot Festival, Hockley Hustle, Light Night or if one of our local sports teams are playing.

You’ll never be short of things to do in Nottingham and if the parents come to visit you can always take them for a nice day out at Wollaton Hall (Batman’s place)!
