University Esports aims to nurture talent and provide students with the opportunity to take their first steps into the pro esports ecosystem.

Dozens of paid opportunities are created each season for students to get involved and showcase their skills, and gain work experience, including in broadcast roles, league operations and more.

The University Esports 2023/24 Winter Split finals broadcasts were produced at Confetti X, the world-class esports centre at Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies, part of Nottingham Trent University. The event broadcast was developed and run entirely by Esports Production students from the university.
