    I'm from Copenhagen and I've applied for a semester abroad at the BA Graphic Design courses at Kingston and Central Saint Martins. I've been accepted into CSM (still waiting to hear form Kingston), but I was wondering if anyone could share some personal experiences from each course to help me choose. I'm affraid that maybe Kingston is too experimental and focused on idea generation and groupwork and not actual 'printed' graphic design. On the other hand I'm not sure wether the CSM course is resting on it's reputation. I'll be joining the 2nd year in the spring semester. Let me know if I've got it all wrong!

    Hi
    I study primary education at Kingston and I know it is obviously very different to your graphic design course. I love Kingston it is such a good area. 30 mins to central London and you have Richmond Park. There is a very friendly atmosphere and a good community feel I would recommend it to everyone!

    Hi
    Here is a link to the information on your course here at Kingston Uni. http://www.kingston.ac.uk/undergradu...raphic-design/ On here is also contact numbers where I would advise to ring the course leader as they will be able to give you an in depth explanation as to what the course is all about.
