    NWRC is one of the best Art colleges around and it was right on my doorstep, so I thought 'why not!' and i've never looked back. I have learned and developed so much in the last two years.

    My Lecturers are so supportive and helpful, the course modules are enjoyable and there's plenty of opportunities for students. After completion I plan to study Business Management at Queens University Belfast.

    Apprenticeships differ from school because you can actually earn a wage while gaining your qualifications.

    The Computing department at NWRC is top class. I just received a £22k bursary from the JP McManus Scholarship to support me in my studies!

    Performing in front of a live audience was the best experience of my life. Auditioning for a character written on paper and making them come to life is exhilarating!

    When I completed my GCSEs I knew that I wanted to go to College to learn a trade. During my course I had the opportunity to compete at the UK WorldSkills finals in England. Now I'm one of the UK's top tilers!

    During my time at NWRC Limavady, I have felt nothing but accepted, welcomed and encouraged. I’d highly recommend the Art and Design experience at NWRC to anyone looking to start a career in the creative sector. The tutors will push you to achieve at the highest level.
