"I wanted to study fashion because it's fast, it's varied, it's exciting and you get to do lots of design, drawing and research, all of which I love. I chose to come to Kingston because it's renowned for being one of the best courses both in terms of design and getting a job afterwards."
"The University location is also great. It's got everything you want - parks, shops, bars, nightlife - and it's easy to get to London."
"Apart from just doing something I love everyday, the highlight of the course has been an internal competition, which was set up by the fashion label Gas Jeans. The Faculty chose some of my work to put forward for the competition, which was exhibited on the catwalk before the third year Degree Show. That was really exciting."
"University is a lot more informal than college and that's something I've liked. You are treated as an adult and the course has definitely helped me focus. It has made me realise that just because you do a certain degree, it doesn't mean that you have to work in that specific field. I now know being trained in design provides lots of opportunities."
"I have also learnt that I like variety and I enjoy being very independent. So I would like to set up my own company. I like the idea of being very organised and building my own career."
