Industry Week

  • BAFTA award-winning Senior Concept and Environment Artist Anna Hollinrake

Do It For Real

At Confetti, we pride ourselves on our industry connections, which allow students to ‘Do It For Real’ and experience working in their chosen industries alongside their studies.

Past students have gained work experience with the likes of Lockwood Publishing, Dambuster Studios and many others, allowing them to fully immerse themselves within the gaming industry whilst still studying – not just learn about it from a distance.

Degree Showcase

Every year, Confetti’s degree students also display their work at the Degree Showcase event. This year, in light of the current restrictions, we’ve taken this showcase online.
