    The support I received from my lecturers at NWRC was incredible. They always pushed me to my full potential and gave me the confidence to open my own beauty salon.

    My time at the College has been amazing. The tutors are so helpful and encouraging, even in these difficult times where things are anything but normal. I can not recommend this course enough for anyone who has a passion for Art and Design!
