We can't wait to welcome you to Central Saint Martins. The information below will help you to settle in as you start - or continue - your creative journey with us.

Central Saint Martins is alive with different ways of thinking, making and doing. Across art, design and performance, our students create the ideas, materials and actions for a better future.

From tackling the climate and biodiversity emergencies to forging more equitable societies, we believe that artists and designers are equipped to address our urgent global challenges. We can't wait to see what you do!

Our Head of College Dr Rathna Ramanathan has recorded a short message to welcome our new and returning students to the 2023-24 academic year.
