hi everyone I'm planning to move to London for my foundation in Art and design in the future but im thinking about which school is good.I've heard that CSM is overrated and too crowded and it costs a lot.Is it true?
Is LCF or Kingston a good choice ?or do u guys have any other suggestions?
Thanks.
BTW,I'm hoping to do fashion BA after the foundation.

my friends who did the foundation in art and design course at LCF loved it.
foundation is definitely a good route to take to get to the BA. which BA course are you aiming for?

What about BIAD (Birmingham Institute of Art & Design)?? Anyone going there?? Last week I just talked to the guy who represented the college. I showed him my sketchbooks and he said that I don't need to do foundation and that I can go straight to the degree course in fashion design. So I just want some feedback about the school.

I also want to apply to Universities of the Arts London but I have a feeling that they're gonna put me in foundation. How's the foundation course at CSM? I've always wanted to do fashion at CSM but I'm not so sure about foundation because I heard that there are way too many students in the course.

I think it can take quite a while to get into the CSM foundation courses. I know a guy who waited like a year to get on one....

I've looked into it before. It's just south east of London so you could technically live in London and commute by car (in fact, it's a bit of a walk it looks like if you plan on using transport). The first grad I think of off the top of my head is Maria Cornejo who designs Zero Maria Cornejo and it looks to be a pretty respected program. I like the school personally.

Never heard of biad before. as for foundation, well, i heard it's pretty tough at CSM. and that it depends what you want to major in. don't expect the teachers to be 'come sit on my lap and i'll tell you what to do'. my friend had to rough it but it's worth it. she got onto the BA womenswear course. then again, CSM is not known for their BA. they are known for the MA. the MA Sshow is where the talent scouts <if that's what you call them>, head hunters and big players look to for new meat.

hey i went 4 an open day there when i was applying to unis 2yrs ago. the fashion course seemed interesting and the tutors very professional but it was the campus that dissapointed me with being in the middle of nowhere, it depends on what you want to get from the uni experience (so i opted for northumbria instead!!!!!). My friend was looking at doing textiles and drama there. She got in and was really excited by the textiles course it was quite diverse. sorry cant b much more help.

I'm an American student and I really want to study fashion in England next year..

Any one have anything to say about any of the following schools for fashion design in england?
  • Kingston University-
  • University of Wesminster-
  • University of Leeds-
  • Bournemouth University-
  • Northumbria University-
Any any any information would be great...
also.. any recommendations for schools for the art foundation (because I think it may be required to take that before entering straight into fashion at any of these universites... correct me if I'm wrong, please)

Thanks!

I hoping to do an MA in Publishing, and I'm looking at courses at UCL and London College of Communications. I'm currently at an Australian uni doing an BA, and have Irish citizenship, and am able to get UK citizenship. Does anyone have any information about these courses/unis?
