“I chose to study at NTU because I really wanted to study Textiles from a fashion perspective. NTU teaches Textiles in the same area as Fashion Design and Knitwear Design which means I can focus my Can ageing become the new standard of beauty project from a variety of angles.
“I am currently researching the anti-ageing movement and why people tend to think that ageing is the end of being beautiful. I am hoping to make a commercial, timeless fabric into a garment, such as a scarf, that will cover the whole body and can be worn by all generations. If my product is ageless then hopefully the customer will not feel the need to change their clothes when ageing.
“In terms of facilities, NTU has everything. For my course there is a lot of machinery I have never seen in my previous university, which I have had introductions on from the technicians. The size of the city is great for students, all of the facilities and buildings here are close together making them convenient and easy to access.
“I really would recommend my course, especially to international students. The course staff are always friendly and open for questions and the support system for international students is great.”
