    Everything the Music departament at NWRC had on offered sounded appealing and was the obvious next step for me after my GCSEs.

    I chose to study at NWRC because it was the best place to learn about the world of hospitality! The facilities at the College are great and I’ve gained lots of experience working with the public.
