The recording facilities at NWRC are second to none. I use my free studio time to demo and record new songs. You wouldn't get this anywhere else at such a professional level.Hannah Richardson (Music)
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!Rachel Buckley
