“The course, the workshops, the supervisors — they all encouraged me to think outside the box and push design boundaries. My time at UCA was busy and intense, but beyond exciting! I learned so much and it was great being somewhere that encouraged me to be my creative best.” Hefina Williams, BA (Hons) Fashion
