    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.

    I was so much happier completing a course in something I really enjoyed, rather than studying three A-Levels in subjects that weren't going to benefit me in the future.
