"As an East GalleryNUA Assistant you get first hand insight into how people look at art - you are literally a fly on the wall, so getting feedback on other people's art is really useful, because it's basically a big group crit."
BA (Hons) Fine Art
"Clocking-up hours in the workshops is absolutely essential. From the beginning of the first year, having hands-on workshop experience has been the best way for me to develop new skills but also make mistakes, learn from them and have fun."
BA (Hons) Textile Design
"Being in a design studio is a great experience. You’re working on different aspects of the same project, so everything must be consistent and you also get to learn from each other."
BA (Hons) Graphic Design
"I have really developed as a designer, learning how to make logical choices to enhance my designs by using my strengths as well as other techniques that NUA has taught me. The course has also really allowed me to develop my own style for my designs. "
BA (Hons) Interior Design
"NUA is surrounded by this warm creative atmosphere that is filled with quirky bars, shops, galleries and spaces fitting every mood and style."
BA (Hons) Fine Art
"Norwich is great. It kind of reminds me of my neighbourhood back home in Singapore: quiet but lots of people and you have everything you need."
BA (Hons) Graphic Communication
"University was a chance to be creative. It gave me an opportunity to produce work that I wouldn't have been able to, had I just gone straight into the work place."
