    Hi guys, thought I'd make this forum for people who've applied for the fashion journalism courses at LCF and CSM this year as I haven't been able to find anyone else who's applied for it. Anyone else completely stressed waiting to hear back from them?

    I applied to the Fashion Communication: Fashion Journalism course at CSM, I'm so stressed out! I sent my application last Sunday and I haven't received an acknowledgment letter from the University yet, did you? I literally go check the emails every two seconds, it's crazy haha

    I received an email saying they had my application but it wasn't straight away so I wouldn't worry too much! I had to submit an essay on Pebblepad for LCF but haven't heard anything from CSM yet aaah

    Hey! I've applied to both of the Fashion Journalism courses, and I'm also very stressed out I know that LCF interviews run from about the 20th of February, but I'm not sure about CSM! I'm constantly checking my emails/UCAS. I've already recieved an offer from LCC for Magazine Journalism and Publishing, they were pretty quick getting back to me. I think LCF/CSM would be better courses for me though.

    Good luck to everyone else who has applied! I hope you all get an offer x

    Hi I've applied for Fashion Journalism at LCF and CSM too. I submitted 500 words to LCF through Pebblepad. I'm currently compiling my 12 pages for the applicant day on Feb 1st at UCA. I have an offer at LCC for Journalism.

    Heyy. I have also applied to the fashion Journalism courses at LCF and CSM and still haven't heard back from either so now the panic is really starting to set in haha. I didn't submit my UCAS stuff until the 21st of December so I don't know if it's naive to blame the lack of replies on that?? Either way I'm really feeling the stress

    I know that both LCF and CSM wait until at least the 15th of January for 'equal consideration' so I wouldn't worry about that, apparently they take a few weeks from then to go through all the applications!

    I still haven't heard anything about an essay/article nor a rejection so I guess it's just a matter of waiting.

    The brief is so vague! There are so many topics you could write about. No idea what to choose though

    I was pretty chilled but now I'm kind of worried. I submitted my application 15/12 and I received acknowledgements on ucas about how they're deciding etc. but I never got anything from lcf to submit 500 words and I'm still waiting for csm to reply or reject so idek what to think😂😭🙃do any of you think they're probably still deciding/sending out replies (I know that fashion journalism/communication has an abundance of applicants)

    I'm not sure! I submitted mine in early November but it wasn't until the end of December that I got the email for LCF to do the essay and now only just received the email from CSM. They're probably doing it in batches
