We know choosing the right college 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:

  • 300 capacity live event venue
  • Critical listening seminar room

Be part of a community!

Confetti Christmas Nightmare

At Confetti you’ll be part of a community full of talented, inspirational creatives, studying alongside students with the same goals. 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! Our Christmas parties are legendary and DJ Yoda just played our Industry Week after show party.

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!

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 further your studies with a degree course 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.

Showcase your work

Celebrate 2017

Our annual college-level student showcase ‘Celebrate’ is a great event! Our students have the chance to display their work at Broadway Cinema, The National Videogame Arcade and Rough Trade – venues that are within minutes of Confetti, in the heart of Nottingham’s Creative Quarter.

This year, the Broadway Cinema screened our annual ‘Celebrate Short Film Festival’  showcasing documentaries, music videos, commercials and short film productions by our talented TV, Film & Acting students.

Our gaming gallery, digital media and VFX exhibition, presented at the National Videogame Arcade was a hit with family, friends, and the public.

The line-up at Rough Trade represented Confetti’s Music Performance andTechnical Events students – good vibes and great sounds. Whilst our performers took the stage, DJs hit the decks and the technical events crew pulled out all the stops with their lighting and sound skills.  

See what we got up to on the day.
