    Hello,
    I'm considering to apply to Central Saint Martins MA Fine Art -program, but I'm a bit suspicious. Is it more like design and fashion school? I work in video and film and I don't want to get too influenced by fashion trends, but I'm really interested in continental philosophy. They have an other program to which I also have a great interest, MRes Art: Philosophy and Theory. What's Central Saint Martins in comparison to Goldsmith or Royal College of Art? Though Goldsmith it's too late to apply anymore, and I feel so sorry about that... I'm not coming from UK so it was surprise for me that so many schools you have to apply much earlier than other schools in Europe.
    And does anyone know more about Kingston's experimental film master program?
    It would be great help to hear your experiences!

    Hi there !

    Great to hear about your interest in studying at Central Saint Martin’s UAL . Understandably you may be wondering due to Saint Martin’s reputation as a design school whether it would be the right place for you to study fine art . Although the school is reputable for its fashion and design works I feel that it is a great school to study any creative course at .

    I don’t know much about the course at Goldsmiths or the Royal colleges of art except for the fact that they specialise in a generally more fine art direction.

    I think the benefit of studying at a place like CSM is that it is a place of multi disciplinary creative study . It is therefore inevitable that the other courses will inspire your work in fine art in some way , personally I see this as a good thing !

    Inspiration is everywhere , the students on the Fashion or related design courses are in the same way often influenced and inspired by the fine art course , architecture, jewellery, performance design etc etc . Everyone inspires each other , although CSM might be well known for the fashion department it is definitely not just a fashion school !

    It’s one of the University of the Arts London’s amazing creative hubs and I can say that all my friends in fine art definitely love it here !

    Hope I could help !
    Thanks
