Leo Nicholl

Course: Foundation Degree in Business

Meet Business student Leo. After completing his Level 3 qualification (which is equivalent to 3 A-Levels), Leo progressed to a Foundation Degree with the College before moving directly into the final year of a Business Degree at Ulster University. Leo now runs his own successful textile company, Custom Designs.

My Foundation Degree course gave me the tools and knowledge I needed to progress to a Degree in Business and Enterprise. I recently started my own textile business in the city called 'Custom Designs'.

During his time at the college Leo also took part in an Erasmus mobility to Barcelona where he worked with a training club supporting them to improve their online presence.

Leo says: “Business at NWRC is brilliant. I really enjoyed it. The teaching staff are all amazing and so supportive. Students aren’t always aware of the options available to them after fifth year but If you know what you want to do and you are focused, NWRC is a great place to study.

“I’d rather have the equivalent of 3 A Levels in Business than study two other subjects that I don’t enjoy.

“My plan now is travel. I’ve always wanted to work on a cruise ship and I’m hoping to get a job as a sales manager.”
