Thanks guys for all the input! I've been looking into going to the international summer program for art history in Cambridge but its so pricey! Plus, I'm not quite sure how the grades and credits would transfer to the University I'm at now and too be honest I've been too lazy to find out lol.

I'm wondering about Central St. Martin's College of Art and Design. I'm a 15 year old American student, and I'm thinking about applying there in a few years. If anyone goes there, could you please tell me everything you know about it?
-How much it costs a year for U.S. students versus U.K. students
-Annual living cost versus tuition fees
-Whether it would be more cost efficient to live on campus or rent a flat
-Financial aid situations
-Scholarships
-Living Conditions on Campus
-How hard the classes/exams are
-How manageable the expenses are
-How good the food is
-Typical incomes of students who work in the area
-Projects that you do
-Do you have to intern to graduate
-Application/graduation requirements
-What did you put in your portfolio
-How good of a school is it

Personal Statement
Hi everyone,

I have decided to apply for a part time fashion degree that starts in October. As you may already know most if not all university applications require you to do a personal statement to support your application. I know you are meant to write about why you have chosen the course etc but I wanted to get come tips on what else to include and how long it should be? I am also really stuck on how to start it off and the structure of it.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Lainey

My suggestion would be to look at their website and in the old Fashion Schools thread. If you do a simple search, you will turn up lots of information on CSM.

Fashion Journalism In Britain
Does any one have any idea what kind of a-levels are ideal to get a job in fashion journalism/writing? I want to do runway reports or fashion articles (most probably in america) and I live in england but I have no idea what kind of a-levels or degree to take!

Do American employers even know what a-levels are? Do courses in journalism, media and art appreciation if you can. Clothing is art and you need to learn how to descibe is clearly.

Request for advice from a fashion student!
I have an interview at London College of Fashion this Friday & would like some friendly advice from anyone who can help.

The course I have applied for is a one year Fashion Access Programme in Fashion Promotion Media. The interview is split into 2 sections; a written essay test on a given fashion topic, & a group interview with around 5-7 applicants.

This is the 1st time I will have been to a fashion interview & although I am a keen fashionista, I do not know what to expect from the interview process.

Can anyone give me any advice on how to prepare & also what to wear???

Thanks

Kelly

Thanks, that's good advice. I am planning to wear a black & white checked pencil skirt, deep purple v-neck jumper & a black patent leather waist belt.

I want to stand out, but in a good way!
