Results Days 2023
Art and Design graduate Aoife Harvey returned to North West Regional College (NWRC) this week to encourage students receiving exam results to consider applying to their local Further Education (FE) college for their next stage of study.
Aoife, who recently won the BBC TV show ‘A Stitch Through Time,’ met with Limavady campus manager Luke McCloskey, Learning Resource Assistant, Clare Heffernan, as well as her lecturer Emma Dickson and Art & Design Curriculum Manager Gaenor Speer.
Aoife previously studied at St Patrick’s and St Brigid’s, Claudy, and enrolled at NWRC Limavady when she was 16 to study the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design. She spent a further two years at NWRC studying the UAL Foundation Diploma and then to Ulster University where she achieved a first class honours degree in Fashion and Textiles.
Ahead of GCSE Results Day on Thursday, Aoife said: “I’d tell anyone receiving their GCSE results this week to go along to their local FE college to find out what’s available. Going to NWRC after my GCSEs gave me the chance to pursue my passion.
“I’ve now finished university and am working on my own brand AH Designs. As well as taking part in A Stitch Through Time on BBC Northern Ireland I also recently took part in Project Fashion at the Culloden Estate showcasing my clothing on the runway to promote slow fashion.
“I’m excited to see what the future has in store and will always be thankful to my lecturers at NWRC for the support and guidance they gave me.”
