“I chose to study at New College because of the organisation of the classrooms and how welcoming it was. I like that feedback is given throughout your course and you’re given plenty of help when needed. I like the HE rooms because they’re a quiet area to work on assignments.”


“When I had finished my Textiles course, I wanted to go to University but I really liked the teachers here so I decided to stay on. The teachers are really supportive and show you a clear path of where you’re going. My creativity has really expanded here.”
