    i was there last summer.i applied for dual summer courses in CSM and NABA (italy) for fashion design beginners.i studied in CSM for two weeks and really enjoyed it,we had basic design sessions,visited a museum then picked a subject and design a collection of it.at the end of two weeks we completed our projects and presented it.but it was real fun,also the tutor was so nice to us. then we got to NABA in italy for another two weeks but really hated the courses at NABA after CSM.i think u can try for just CSM summer courses. i though it'd be nice to study in two colleges in one month.but no:)after i came to my country i thought of applying for undergradute fashion design but because of the financial issues i can not.cos it is really freaking expensive for international students.i'm much more sure after i read these threads, i did understand i had few chance to get in.it is really hard.i chatted few people from the college they said fashion department is really hard to get in..:(

    Are there any Americans here who were accepted, or does anybody know any?
    I want to know if being American will make it harder for me to get in for any reason... because of not being able to go for an interview, etc.
    Do I have to take any standardized tests (A levels?) or will they accept SAST scores?

    yeah, I suppose, though I don't know of anyone who did - probably because you won't really end up doing your own work on top of what they set you at college. And because it's not about quantity, I'd suggest working really hard on the course projects instead.

    ^thank you :)
    im from toronto, canada

    the experience was like just appling to any other universities/colleges.
    i printed off the application forms for international students and prepared a 40 images portfolio and i sent it to them.
    they work so fast...within 24 days i got my letter and portfolio back (including shipping time).
    i got all the needed forms like housing and acceptance slip and how to pay and visa and etc etc.

    there was something i didnt get. i didnt sign up to get my portfolio back, but they sent it back to me anyways. i didnt even pay them...
    do they do this to all the international students?

    I signed in for the august (1 week) photography course and I'll (probably) be staying at Connaught Hall. Anyone else here at The Fashion Spot doing the same course?
