About Central Saint Martins

Central Saint Martins is a world-renowned arts and design college which brings together a diverse range of creative practices under one roof.

We are made up of an ever-changing network of cultures, backgrounds and experiences. Our students – past and present – position and direct us. Our alumni have helped shape the world. We are always proud of them but also remain acutely aware that we continue to be defined by the creative energy and extraordinary achievements of our current students.

Across our nine programmes, we persistently question the cores of our disciplines, encouraging collision and exchange across boundaries to generate unexpected outcomes. We guide our students to discover new ways of thinking, making and doing. We give them the confidence to unearth ideas and formations that provoke and disturb accepted norms. We do this with many partners – from the local to the global, from industry to the public.

Our aim is to turn the College inside out, making public the energy, intelligence and creativity that exists inside our walls. We do all this because we believe that arts and design can generate real, productive change.
