You might have some questions about what this means for you as a current or future student, so see below for answers to some more commonly asked questions. If you have a specific query, please get in touch.

Will anything change?

Day-to-day, no. You’ll still be a student of Confetti and you’ll continue with your education as usual at our Convent Street site. You’ll enjoy the same service and support, with the tutors you already know.

I’m a DMU student, will anything change for me?

Again, day-to-day, no. Confetti’s long-standing and successful relationship with De Montfort University will remain strong, seeing you through your course, which will be unaffected by this change. You’ll still be a student of Confetti and DMU and you’ll continue with your education as usual at our Convent Street site. You’ll enjoy the same service and support and graduate with a Foundation Degree from a great university.

From September 2016, all our degree-level courses will be run through NTU.

I have just finished doing an FdSc here at Confetti and want to top-up to a full degree

Great! If you’ve already applied through DMU, brilliant – nothing will change. If you’ve not yet applied and would like to know what options are available you can contact the Education Support Team for advice.

From September 2016, you’ll also be able to top-up at NTU and indeed at any other Higher Education institute that offers this option. As always, your tutors and our Education Support Team are on-hand to discuss your options and give you impartial advice about what’s best for your next step.

What are the opportunities?

We’re really thrilled about this partnership and are already developing a range of new courses, including our FdSc in Technical Events and FdSc in Visual Effects Technology, with more exciting developments in the pipeline for 2016.

What does the future look like for Confetti?

Bright! With the support of NTU, we’ll continue to grow our creative education offer – developing new courses and continuing to stay ahead of the game to ensure we offer the type of qualifications and experience that the creative industries market requires of its workforce. With the creative industries growing at *three times the rate of the rest of the UK economy, there’s never been a better time to be working towards a career in this sector – we’re excited to continue training the creative professionals of the future.
