RCA VS Goldsmiths VS CSM MFA/MA Fine Art/Art

Hello,
Kinda feeling confused about which masters to go for as I keep getting mixed opinions on each uni. I got in MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths, MFA Arts and Humanities RCA (and I’m still waiting to hear on MA Print), and I’ve applied for MA Fine Art at CSM. I did apply to the slade, but there was an admissions error and unfortunately that cost my application.

I feel the most excited by goldsmiths, but there isn’t as many funding opps, and the fees are quite high (I’m still looking for external funding), but RCA and UAL do offer more scholarships/ are cheaper. But I’ve been told mixed things about all these unis and I did attend ual for my undergrad.


Honestly which one is the best one, I know RCA is ranked highest, but I also want to get the most out of the masters??

RCA, I recently attended some public lecture or exhibition and realized that how important of a title hhhhh. it's like a magic, when I revealed I'm from RCA, the profs and guests would agree to exchange number and keep touching with you. CSM may also have that kind of imfluence around world but Goldsmiths seems not so famous like others, which will make you loss some chances.

Ah thanks for this! I know the title of RCA sounds great, I’ve definitely heard mixed things about it, but I have heard that with all universities!
