    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.

    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.
