“I enjoyed both of my courses but I think the Fashion Design course was my favourite, as I really want to be a clothes designer.

I have been used to working by myself for a long time so I was a little nervous about being in a group of people, but it was very helpful to share ideas and learn from other students. There were some challenging areas of the course. I have been improving my English, so I have been studying hard to keep up with information about the fashion industry.

My careers advisor at my university recommended doing a summer course here and it was definitely the right decision.  I loved the hands-on approach to the fashion course. It was nearly all practical, which was a good contrast to the Portfolio Preparation course, which has a bit more digital work on it.  Its been my first time in Bournemouth and I really love it – its very safe, lots to do and the beaches are lovely.  I am staying on at AUB now to join the BA Fashion department as a Study Abroad student for a term. I am so excited!”
