NWRC has opened so many doors for me and has given me the experience I need for a career in the creative media industry.Carrie Bonner
At 16, I knew I wanted to be part of the creative industry, but I wasn't certain which avenue to pursue. The traditional route of A-Levels just wasn’t for me. My years at NWRC were amazing, significantly shaping my creative journey. The facilities and lecturers are the best. I felt incredibly prepared to study Fashion Design at Ulster University.Aoife Harvey (Art & Design)
