and also, is there anyone who's applying also this year?

If youre interested in textiles/fashion, than csm would be better (camberwell even recommend you apply csm foundation on their website if fashion is your interest). not sure about the other pathways though.

Ive just got my portfolio review date for csm where i applied for art foundation specialising in textiles. good luck wherever you applied!

Hi, just read your post,, limbyjasmine, did you go to csm and if so how do you find it? I'm more interested in textiles but not keen on the fashion side of things, would you recommend csm anyway?

thanks

I graduated from chelsea a couple of years ago, but did my foundation at CSM, so most of my undergrad friends were from the CCW foundation course. If you're set on fashion and textiles, i'd go to CSM, you have a much better shot of getting a spot in the BA courses post foundation. But be prepared that people are mega competitive and a lot of people have dreamed their whole life of getting into CSM, so it can be a bit intense in there. I went in unspecialised and the system they had gives you a good opportunity to try new areas. The teaching was hit or miss but this was quite a few years ago and the staff may be different now. I'm glad I did that foundation but it also helped me realise it wasn't the place for me and gave me the opportunity to head off to Chelsea for my BA course.

Otherwise Camberwell is a great course, people I know there generally had a very good time and seem a lot more mellow compared to CSM. I'd go with CCW if you want to get into fine art or graphics, and I think generally they put more time into teaching you than CSM does.

Basically if you've decided what BA course you're aiming for, go to their foundation course because you get to know what it's like from the inside and you'll get a chance to chat to the BA students too. If not then I'd go by discipline and facilities.

Hey! I'm struggling to choose between the foundation course at CSM and the 4 year extension degree at goldsmiths, and from what you said, I'm a little intimidated by CSM. Do you think it's worth going to CSM for their foundation at all? And can you elaborate a little more on what life was like at CSM. Thank you, any help would be appreciated!!!
