fashion portfolio and foundations courses are not that hard to get into, esp. for international students.. it seems that is where they make a lot of the $$$ from.

She will try to assess as to which school will be good for you within the London Institute, but she does not offer places.
OMG EDUCO, Congraulation that u can get into 2nd yrs,
I believe it's huge, I didn't know any one can do this~
Are u serious that only 3 international student can get into the MA.
I dont know they offer so much places for CSM students.
I've heard that lots of world top students fighting for the places of MA.
that's really crazy.

^^ yes Matthew, only 3 international students get into the MA, that's why they discourage many people they feel aren't ready yet. I don't know if they offer the rest to CSM students, but I know those out of the EU have a really hard time, from what I remember. And thanks by the way, I'm really excited about all of this.

no, home students are all UK and EU applicants.. their fees are the same. international students are students who come from outside the UK or EU.. (and have to pay 3x as much )

Hi! This year I am going to apply to CSM for BA Fashion course.
Im building my portfolio know, but I'm not really sure what to put into it... right know I'm attending a Fashion degree, and I'm doing a lot of drawings, but those are more technical (drawing of the model with perfect measures, flat drawing of the outfit in another page, and explaining materials) I really hate these drawings... at home I usually do more creative and artistic drawings, but what should I send? the technical ones or the ones I draw with my style??

Also about my applycation through UCAS (can't I apply without UCAS, by myself??), I'm going to send my applycation... but when should I send the portfolio? at the same time?

I hope you can help me with these doubts, Thanks a lot!
