I did a summer course last year at CSM, I can only recommend it! The facilities are great and the teaching was good.

i think you have to be more specific, what course are you planning on applying to?

it's not going to be about quantity in the end anyway, they just want to see what you're about and you won't be able to show that with 3 sketches and a pair of homesewn trousers.

No of course I know that, quality above quantity.
But I'll be more specific, this October I'll be applying for the foundation course of art & design.

& I know that you can not say exactly how many projects they expect.. but I read somewhere that people had around 40-50! project in their portfolio, to me that is unbelievable (& unreachable). So that's why I asked it, 'cause it scared me a little bit.

I've always thought it is about 5 projects? maybe a few more?

40-50 projects sounds silly and a bit over the top!

I did not get into last year CSM foundation but I did get into the menswear program this year. My portfolio was so small..... I had 2 projects and 4 life drawings. Each project had an A-3 sketchbook, a research folder, and about 10 A-3 sheets. All the other people at the portfolio assesment had bigger portfolios and I did not even get an interview but? I recommend when you apply for the BA put your portfolio in something that reflects you/your work not just a standard portfolio

HM.... have more work than I did hahah, but I think when they say 40 projects for foundation they mean around 30 A-4 TO A-1 individual pieces and then a few sketchbooks. My friends that got into FDM and Womenswear had at least 3 projects/sketchbooks as well and life drawings, my life drawings were **** too.... i really dont know how I got in but ! And dress appropriately, dont go over the top but dont show up in jeans and a t shirt to an interview, They did a double take at my outfit and even if they didnt like it they remembered me....

and in your sketchbook experiment with things, cutting things out, acetate, layering things, do lots of different design ideas to show them you can do more than one thing. And for each project, make sure its you but if all you like is black then there is going to be a problem because im sure more than one more person likes all black and they will only chose one of each person.... ahha that all black was me but im sure it was many others as well

haha you're funny, and really helpful. thank you thank you thank you. I still have 2 questions: Do you think life drawings are very important?
& I'm more into art than into design, do you have any important things/comments/tips (about art), that I should know before my application.
