    I've heard mixed things about Westminster fashion course. Yes the areas grim, the uni has a bit of a **** reputation, but the Fashion course is meant to be excellent; mainly due to Andrew Groves the new head lecturer. There was a great deal of posotive press surrounding last years graduate show, it was reviewed as 'stand out' in the guardian. I have spoken to a few of the current students on the course and they confirm all of the above. One of them has been in ID magazine, Vogue and Rhianna has worn her garments.

    Despite the growing posotive reputation I would probably choose ST Martins If I had a choice between the two :')

    Hi! I also received an email from Kingston that says that I will have received an email asking me to upload the portfolio and that they postpone the deadline, but I haven't received this email concerning my uploading the portfolio.
    Do you know why? Thanks!

    Hi guys,

    I've applied to:
    Fashion Design Menswear at CSM
    Fashion at Westminster
    Fashion at Kingston
    Fashion at UCA (epsom, where im currently doing my foundation)
    and Fashion at MMU.

    I have an interview day at UCA so far scheduled for the 25th - cant tell you how frustrated i am at the 'strongly discouraging A1 portfolios' when my FD tutors on foundation have been asking for that size...

    Heard from westminster, but that was to say they've got my application.

    Personally i really want CSM or Westminster predominantly because both include a sandwich year. (CSM students get amazing opportunities to intern abroad - a girl at the menswear open day spent half the year at Lanvin in Paris and half at Raf Simons in Antwerp!)

    Hope all your interviews go well xx

    I know, there was a womenswear student who worked on the royal wedding dress!

    And UCA not wanting A1 portfolios is a bit of a bummer as its what i was told to have by my tutors and other uni admission tutors.

    Good luck and merry christmas

    Hello Jack
    I am hoping to get into Wetminster or Central St Martins.
    I have applied for 5 choices:
    CSM- Fashion Design (Womenswear)
    Westminster- Fashion Design
    Northumbria- Fashion Marketing
    Herriot Watt- Fashion
    University of Leeds- Fashion Design

    So far I have only recieved acknowledgement letters from HW and Westminster. I think all of my choices abar Leeds are renowned for doing the application process later, and not giving out interviews till 15th Jan deadline. I wish they would hurry up lol, it's a nerve racking wait.
    Good luck, let me know when you hear back and how you have got on!

    I am also hoping for

    I'm applying for Westminster too. Which is your course preference out of buying and merchandising? Good luck! Hope you get in.
    Probably merchandising, im decent at maths, or I used to be! haha
    I know a few buyers from internaticonale and republic and they say the jobs are over subscribed for and so are the courses (Wmin only takes 40 students on each course each year for merchandising and buying!)

    Spoke to the assistant buying manager from internationale on NYE and she said to go for merchandising, she said the only reason she didnt do it is because she wasnt so illiterate at maths. She also said theres more job opportunities and better money in it apparently!

    Have you heard anything from anywhere yet?

    Try not to worry just yet, i sent mine off on the 15th of Dec and have only heard anything from 3 of my choices. If you sent yours at a similar time it might just be that the Uni's were already shut for christmas and havent opened back up yet

    Where did you apply? x

    For your UCA interview, do you have to do a written test?
    As i applied for Fashion Design at UCA and part of my interview is a written test, was wondering if its the same for Fashion Business and whether you had any idea what it is?

    Good luck in all your interviews x
