Central Saint Martins (CSM) is one of the six colleges that make up the umbrella that is the University of the Arts London (UAL).

The short courses division of Central Saint Martins offers one of the UK’s largest short course programmes for arts and design. Their programme provides students with an environment where they are free to try new things, increase their confidence and nurture their talent.

It’s world-renowned reputation has been forged though the fusion of a diverse range of practices alongside the continuous questioning of the cores of each discipline and the encouragement of both disruptive and collaborative mind-sets to create the unexpected.

Students are given the confidence to challenge accepted norms, provoke dialogue and discover ideas never previously comprehended.
