Essi Peuhkuri

Meet one of our students from Finland

"What I really like about my course is the way it allows me to follow my personal interests, which has helped me a lot in developing my own style and voice as a designer. I’ve really enjoyed my time in Nottingham. It has everything you need, but it is also small enough for you to get to know it really well. There is also always something going on for students."

Essi Peuhkuri studies BA (Hons) Fashion Accessory Design.
