    Cool usage of "as such"

    Hello!

    Can you tell me if "as such" is correct in this sentence, please? If not, what term could I use?

    "The themes of your presentations could vary as such:

    -flowers
    -trees
    -houses....."

    Can you help me?

    Thank you
    Will

    Although I'm not really happy with 'vary' - which sounds a bit like reflection after the fact: 'What were your class's essays like?/'They varied.' (When setting the essay I think the teacher would say something like 'The theme can be anything... [list of examples]'.)
