"The fashion course led me to experience amazing things. I was a member of the winning team for Fujitsu's national 'Operation Innovation' competition which involved incorporating my creative skills with digital technology. As winners, we were taken on a VIP trip to Munich to present our ideas to a worldwide audience. The theory and practical elements of the course allow you to be as creative as you can be - the only limit is your imagination!"Nikita Coombes
