My time at NWRC was such an amazing experience! This course opened so many doors and gave me the chance to apply for lots of degree courses. We were supported so well by the lecturers and we learned so much about research and referencing, and this stood us in good stead for life at university. The College gave me such a huge confidence boost as it got me out of my comfort zone. The wonderful friendships I made will stay with me forever.
