    This course has been an exciting and challenging journey that allowed me to discover my love of design. The excellent tutors opened my eyes to new materials, techniques and media which has helped me develop my illustration and digital skills. I’ve now decided to study Game Design at university.

    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.
