Confetti Students Having Fun

We know choosing the right degree course can be a difficult decision, so we thought we’d help you out and show you why studying at Confetti is a great choice.

We’re developing our facilities

We’re constantly making sure our students are studying in the best facilities, packed with the latest industry standard equipment. Last year we opened our dedicated Film & TV facility – Space2!

Now we’re going even further:

Contemporary Music Hub 

The new home for Music & Events at Confetti opens October 2017! Our students will have access to brand new professional recording studios and editing suites, rehearsal rooms and a 300 capacity performance space. The hub will give our students the opportunity to develop their skills in brand new, industry standard facilities giving them the head start they need to stand out in industry.

Digital Media Hub

Our new £9.1m Digital Media Hub which opens in September 2018 and will feature state of the art studios, labs and classrooms, a contemporary cafe, Learning Resource Centre and a rooftop terrace. Our expanded Music Hub contains rehearsal rooms, professional recording & editing suites and a live performance space.

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.

We Take Squad Goals to the Next Level!

Confetti Christmas Nightmare
Confetti Christmas Social 2016

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

Ok, so if you aren’t from Notts you might just think we all love Robin Hood and mushy peas. And you’re not wrong! But Nottingham is also home to some wicked music venues, cinemas, independent shops and festivals and 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 to Wollaton Hall (Batman’s place) and act all posh!

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 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!

Do It For Real

When it comes to industry experience we can put our blogs where our mouth is.

In the last year we’ve been offering students real work experience at some pretty big events. Whether running the Confetti stage at Splendour Festival (working with The Darkness and the Fratellis), crewing Notts TV programmes or performing at Confetti Live, we offer loads of opportunities to Do it For Real – read Hollie’s story.
