    Anyone applied for this course through the online application? If so, how long do they respond after submitting the application if I get an interview? I applied for the fashion & textiles pathway. The wait is killing me!

    Does anyone know the acceptance rate for fashion & textiles?

    If you applied what pathway did you choose?

    Yes, I also applied for the fashion & textiles pathway through the online application form and they haven't sent me an answer yet. Have you sent them your mini portfolio? I've heard that nobody is rejected before the portfolio review. I guess we don't have to worry too much. I'm not sure about the acceptance rate for foundation, but according to BoF, CSM accepts about 6% for BA fashion courses. It doesn't sound good tbh

    I'm an international student so I uploaded my full portfolio on PebblePad and now I'm just waiting to see if I've gotten an interview yet.

    6% sounds scary :O

    Now I'm afraid, because I'm an EU student and I'm still waiting for a respond. I haven't sent them a link to my portfolio yet I hope they'll reply to me soon.

    I applied for fashion & textiles.

    I submitted my portfolio on the 31st because I thought that was the deadline and I accidently submitted my application early cause I didn't realise they wanted my portfolio 2 weeks later so I freaked out and did everything haha.

    I used up all 30 images because I included my process and research.

    Now I'm really worried, because I'm also an EU student. I guess I have the same deadline I've just sent them an email and I hope they'll reply very soon.

    I received the confirmation email the second week of january and on 30th of January the deadline for submitting my portfolio..

    anyway you need one of their email before submitting because they'll send you some details about Pebble Pad access...

    I've just got a respond and they don't require a reference for this course and there is no prior submission of the portfolio. However, I'm an EU student, so I don't understand how it works. I thought I would be able to submit my portfolio digitally. Now I'm waiting for a reply again.

    That's odd because I got asked for a reference!

    yeah that's totally fine! They said quality over quantity so technically doesn't matter how many files you upload

    I've read on their site that they require one reference, so I don't understand why they don't require a reference from me. That's really awkward.

    Yes, I applied to Kingston a week ago, but I'm also going to apply to UCA Epsom, Bournemouth and Ravensbourne in March. What about you?
