What do you enjoy most about your course? The smaller classes allow us to all have discussions and feel more comfortable. We also get great one-to-one time with the tutor. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? I love how dedicated and passionate the tutors are about their subjects, it’s really inspiring. They’re also all so supportive. What are your next steps? I’m going to York University to study History of Art.What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t know that we’d learn so much valuable knowledge that we can take and apply to our own lives rather than just learning lots of statistics.
