Opportunity Description

What is unique about this program?

Central Saint Martins' alumni include artists and designers who have challenged and shaped the world around us.

CSM offers both an Integrated Study Abroad program, where you will study alongside Central Saint Martins degree students and follow one of their academic tracks (portfolio review may be required to determine an applicant's academic level), as well as the Semester Study Abroad program, which is a 14-week semester program specifically for fashion and graphic design students in the fall or spring.

Students who choose the integrated program must choose one of CSM's undergraduate programs as their "home" subject area for the duration of the semester.  All courses will be taken within that subject area.  During the spring semester, students will be enrolled in two teaching terms at CSM (terms 2 + 3) and it is required that you remain enrolled in both terms to receive full credit from Cornell.  If you wish to attend the integrated program in the fall, you must enroll in one of CSM's pre-term Optional Modules in early-September as a supplement to your regular Term 1 studies in order to meet the full-time credit requirement for Cornell.

What is unique about London?

London is an extraordinary city, full of art and culture, whilst also being one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. The underground system means that it is easy to get around and see what the city has to offer, and all of our college buildings are in walking distance of cultural institutions – from Tate Britain and the British Museum to the intimate studios of emerging international artists.
