Student Profile

Megan Dale

Aged 17 - Conyers' School, Yarm
What do you enjoy most about your course? I love seeing the growth and development in my writing style and how I can translate that to my other subjects too. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? It’s so welcoming and was a great transition from school. What are your next steps? I plan to do Foundation for a year first and then to study History of Art with English at university. What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t know how advanced the language development would be, it’s all about your childhood and the early stages of speech
