    The variety of subjects and the freedom to explore various themes and projects have helped me find my love for contemporary 3D work and sculpture. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about studying Art & Design. School can’t give you the hands-on experience this course does. It has prepared me for University and helped me achieve my dream of going to Glasgow School of Art!

    The recording facilities at NWRC are second to none. I use my free studio time to demo and record new songs. You wouldn't get this anywhere else at such a professional level.
