A city of creatives
Nottingham is a city built on creativity, and you'll study in its creative quarter – an area of Nottingham that encompasses the city’s booming arts and creative tech scene.
The Creative Quarter houses a number of web and graphic design agencies like Stencil and HeX Productions, games design companies including Lockwood, and virtual reality gaming hub Zero Latency; and with more and more tech start-ups moving into the area, it’s an exciting time to be part of Nottingham’s digital ‘scene’.
If you love the arts, you’ll be able to explore the thriving independents that feed Nottingham's culture and character. Studying in the city centre means Nottingham Contemporary, Broadway Cinema and Sneinton Market are on your doorstep, as well as music venues, theatres and much more.
Own your industry
The Confetti Campus is spread across the newly built Digital Media Hub and Metronome, as well as Space2.
We’ve invested heavily in our buildings and facilities, ensuring that our students are working in industry-standard facilities. That way, we know our students are ready to step into any workplace knowing how to use the equipment around them.
Across the campus, the facilities and equipment include:
- recording studios designed by White Mark Ltd – designers for Jay Z and Damian Albarn’s studios – which feature an SSL Duality Delta
- a 400-capacity live venue
- a 25-seat media production lab with Avid and Adobe Creative Cloud
