What do you enjoy most about your course? I like working in the dark room a lot, it’s unusual for a college to have the facilities of a dark room; so when I went looking at colleges I was surprised as no other college I looked at had a dark room. It’s so unique to be taught that and it really sold it for me. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? All the people and how you can share your thoughts with everyone and how everyone’s creative, we learn new things from each other every day. What are your next steps? I’m planning on going straight into industry after college as I feel like I’ve been prepped really well by the course. I’ve been working on my portfolio a lot and I’ve started social media accounts for my work too! What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t know what opportunities it would open you up to and provide you with. I didn’t know how much the course would actually cover! I really thought it would just be taking pictures with a camera that I didn’t really know how to use, but it’s not that at all.

Fully qualified and talented staff will help you produce a range of exciting assignments covering practical and theoretical topics.
