Confetti and Nottingham Trent University
In August 2015 Confetti became part of Nottingham Trent University, bringing you the best of both worlds. You get the special experience of studying at a renowned creative industries institute – with the added bonus of being part of one of the biggest and most popular universities in the UK.
Our new partnership strengthens our talent pipeline and Nottingham’s ability to attract and retain outstanding students. It will increase the industry and work placement opportunities for students from both organisations – offering more chances to “do it for real”.
As a student of Confetti this means you’re studying at an institution that has:
- been named University of the Year at the Times Higher Education Awards 2017
- been named Modern University of the Year in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide
- has been awarded the highest honour – Gold in the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF)
- gained an 89% satisfaction rating in the National Student Satisfaction Survey
Judges at the event commended NTU’s innovative and systematic approach to enabling students to fulfil their academic potential and, in particular, the University’s commitment to supporting students from less privileged backgrounds.
In 2019, Nottingham Trent University has continued their success and have been named ‘University of the Year’ by The Guardian.
Confetti students are automatically enrolled into NTU’s outstanding students union. This means you can get social and be part of the events taking place in their 2,400 capacity evening venue, as well as the numerous bars and cafés.
You can also join one of NTU’s 70 societies ranging from juggling to knitting, and of course debating.
Being part of NTU means a wealth of sporting opportunities. Football, rugby, rowing, hockey, table tennis and lacrosse… If you can play it then chances are NTU does it. If you prefer your sport a bit less outdoorsy then you can access NTU’s fantastic sports hall and gym with a 100 station fitness suite, dance studio and climbing wall.
