STUDENT PROFILE

NIEVE WALTON What do you enjoy most about your course? My favourite thing about this course has definitely been the course leaders. Paul and Tom are amazing and I can’t imagine this course being the same without them. I know I’ll definitely miss them when I leave. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? I love the independence you’re given here. Throughout my course, I felt like part of a working team, which I think is really important in order to grow up and prepare for the future. What are your next steps? I originally planned to try and get a job after college, however, after many conversations and advice from my course leaders, Paul and Tom, I will be studying Graphic Design at Manchester Metropolitan University. What's surprised you about your time here? This course definitely helped me not only build my graphic design skills but also learn how to use my time efficiently and stay organised, as well as communicate with peers and the public through various projects.
