Student work



When I decided to study a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design at Northbrook, I did not know what to expect. It’s safe to say the course exceeded my expectations. The tutors are inspiring, selfless and accommodating to the students every needs. Not only did they provide us with great facilities and thorough insight, but they also gave us consistent support - which encouraged me to produce work I did not think I was capable of. Since completing the course, I have remained in contact with my tutors where they still provide me with additional support regarding education. I now study at a prestige University in Central London and still pursue my passion for art. Thank you to everyone at Northbrook!

The art and design course is a fun and welcoming course, covering so many areas of creativity. It introduced me to areas of art that I had never delved into - resulting in me furthering my education to the Textile Design degree course. All the teachers are super helpful and easy to get along with, they are always there to support you. The two years were full of good art and lots of laughs!
