Creative Quarter Campus

Our Creative Quarter Campus is home to the Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies, delivering our foundation degrees and diplomas in the creative arts.

About Confetti

Confetti was founded by Craig Chettle, a former music producer and sound engineer, as a specialist music institute. Over the years it has developed into a renowned creative industry centre, teaching animation, games, graphic design, film, TV, live events, music and visual effects. Confetti courses are vocational – they are connected to the industries you want to work in and they are designed to give you the very best chance of success.

Confetti also runs a number of commercial businesses – film and TV production company Spool, record label Denizen, creative business hub Antenna and Constellations, a specialist furniture design and manufacturing business. They are also partners with Nottingham’s award-winning television station Notts TV, which broadcasts on Virgin, Freeview and online to a local and global audience.

All of these commercial businesses offer students unique opportunities to get first-hand industry experience, from getting signed to our record label, to working behind the scenes on live TV programmes and meeting creative businesses to establish great contacts.

Confetti and the Creative Quarter

Nottingham is a student-friendly city with a whole lot going on – with a vibrant nightlife and a wide range of places to hang out. The unique character and atmosphere of the Creative Quarter is centred around the historic Lace Market and Hockley area, just a stone’s throw from Confetti. Famous for its independent retailers, Nottingham’s Creative Quarter is a hotbed of culture and home to many of the city’s vintage stores, bars and restaurants – all of which add to the unique character and atmosphere.

Do It For Real

‘Do It For Real’ industry experience lies at the heart of Confetti’s courses - offering ambitious students hundreds of opportunities to gain real industry experience. Expect assignments set by the industry, in-house showcase events, internships and a host of freelance opportunities. With a record label, TV station, film & post-production company all part of the Confetti Media Group family – no one does industry links quite like Confetti do. That level of exposure, experience and talent development places you ahead of the game - ensuring the very best chances of employment when you graduate.

Study in industry-standard facilities

Confetti has specialist hubs dedicated to digital media, film and TV and music and events.

The new £9.1m Digital Media Hub opens in September 2018 and will feature the very latest world class studios, labs and classrooms, a Learning Resource Centre, a contemporary café and a rooftop terrace.

Confetti is also getting ready to launch its £3m brand new contemporary music and events facility – an education hub “of European significance”, which will include world class music studios, rehearsal rooms, sound recording and editing suites, social spaces and a 300-capacity auditorium.

In 2016 Space2 opened as the new specialist hub for film and TV and it features state-of-the-art TV studios, a Green Screen studio and a 144m2 productions space.
