Nottingham Trent University’s Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies will expand into London in September with a new campus, dedicated to creative education for the entertainment industries.
The expansion increases the CAS limited for NTU, with a range of new undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
They will all be validated directly by NTU and share the same admissions and student support services, including recruitment support from the central international development office.
Darius Khwaja, campus director for Confetti London, told The PIE News of his excitement at welcoming international students to campus.
“The Confetti model is inspirational. Its forward-looking and employment-focused curriculum will drive graduate outcomes and contribute to the UK’s vital creative economy.
“I believe the best educational opportunities must be open to people from all backgrounds and so we are delighted to now be able to open our doors to students from all over the world,” continued Khwaja..
Confetti has only recently been given the green light by the UK Visa and Immigration Office to start recruiting international students to its Nottingham and London campuses.
While the Confetti brand is new to the international education community, it hopes that its cemented reputation in UK further and higher education will aid its trajectory.
The Nottingham campus is home to a wide range of studios and industry-connected tutors supporting over 2000 students.
These include Metronome, a music and events complex designed by renowned audio architects White Mark Ltd and Confetti’s latest venture, Confetti X, a £5 million cross-media venue specialising in esports production and emerging technologies.
In 2022, they supported the first-ever Commonwealth Esports Championships.
“The best educational opportunities must be open to people from all backgrounds”
The London campus is based in the east of the city, close to the popular destinations of Brick Lane and Spitalfields Market – and also sports a 600-capacity venue that will host live music, entertainment and esports events.
Confetti has delivered creative industry education since 1994, and holds contacts across production technologies and performance within live events, TV, film, music, games and esports.
Creative industries are one of the UK’s key export industries alongside the international education strategy, under the stewardship of the Department for International Trade.
They are expected to play a crucial part of the educational partnerships with Commonwealth countries like Nigeria, who have a rapidly growing digital economy and entertainment industry.
