BSc (Hons) Esports Production* – NEW for 2020

On this innovative degree, you’ll learn about the Esports industry, including production and broadcast technology; event management and production; games analysis; and entrepreneurship in Esports and other emerging technologies.

Esports is a global business that continues to grow rapidly, incorporating a number of creative technologies including games, live events production, broadcasting and streaming and content creation. The industry is comprised of professional players, games publishers, event specialist, broadcast/streaming providers, sponsors and technology providers.

You’ll study in Confetti’s renowned creative technologies campus, which includes Confetti HQ, a multi-million pound digital media hub in the heart of Nottingham’s Creative Quarter, and Metronome, a world-class live events complex designed in collaboration with White Mark Ltd which houses a 400 capacity public venue, production suites and studios.

Expect a course jam-packed with big-name guests hosting talks and workshops. Every year, you’ll take part in Industry Week and network with a range of professionals; past guests include Esports production company Unequalled media, Rockstar Games, Sumo Digital and Deep Silver Dambusters.

This course draws on Confetti’s creative industry and games industry links, with the opportunity to work alongside Esports organisations in the development and production of events. For example, the British University Esports Championship Winter Finals took place at Metronome, whilst Confetti has its own student Esports team that competes in the British Esports Championships.

The aim of the course is to equip you with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to embark on a successful career in the Esports industry and future emerging technologies. Typical roles include event management; broadcast and production; games design; events production; analyst; and consultant.
