Student Profile(s)

Riz Ahmed, Graduated 2006, appeared in Nightcrawler, Jason Bourne and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Central guided me from a place of blind enthusiasm to one of diligent craft, providing me with the solid foundations I needed over the coming years. My course leaders showed such belief and patience towards us, and built such trust, that I ultimately followed them into this unknown territory. I grew more in that one year than I could have ever imagined.
