Studying at NWRC was the best two years of my life. I’m now signed with one of the biggest Talent Agents in the UK.Olivia McBride (Performing Arts)
It made sense for me to study in an area where I could work alongside my studies. There is a huge benefit to the HLA because you can study locally, there’s no course fees and you learn about the industry while you’re working. There are so many employment opportunities!Roberta Deehan (HLA in Hospitality and Tourism Management)
