I was told by the international office that it is possible, but you need to prove yourself BEYOND what is going on at CSM. Meaning, if you already know what you're doing, you must demonstrate incredible experience and talent to be able to skip the foundation. Meaning degrees, etc, within the same subject.

Yeah, why do you hate it? I'm always curious to know why people hate CSM. You're not the first time I've heard this..

im just guessing...but is it because of the way they teach there?
i have heard people say they hate CSM because it's so 'free'..unlike american schools like parsons which is always on your case.
and from what i see..the general asthetics of european fashion schools are different than ones in north america

edit: yes..please tell us all the shitty things about CSM

there is no sales tax, you get an nus card and get 10% off loads of stuff because you're a student like topshop hmv pizza hut
