STUDENT PROFILE

JONNY MUIR Why did you chose this course? I progressed from the Interior, Architecture and Product Design (3D) course; this is more suited to me than a degree because it’s more practical and hands on, I get so much one to one time with the tutor and learn real life ‘on the job’ skills as opposed to mainly theoretical skills in a degree. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? The support from student services has been great. I’ve loved everything, it’s a really good community. What do you enjoy most about your course? It’s all about designing and making and that’s just what I want to do.
