    There was no point in studying for 3 A-Levels I was never going to use. I achieved 8 As and 2 Bs in my GCSEs. The College was perfect for me because I wanted to specialise in Music Production, which I couldn't do at school.

    I’ve always been interested in construction and architecture. My HND was the perfect stepping-stone to university. The knowledge I gained at NWRC helped me understand elements of my Degree course much more easily and I was able to complete my assignments to a higher standard.
