One of Germany’s biggest broadsheet newspapers has featured two UAL Study Abroad students in its magazine.

Documenting life at Central Saint Martins over the past few months, Sűddeutsche Zeitung published a 46-page special edition of their magazine dedicated to London and the College. The magazine has eight alternative covers and one of the covers features Kira Niu, a student from Parsons, on our Integrated Study Abroad programme. The magazine also features a group shot featuring Jinjin Lin, study abroad student from FIT.

The White Show

"The White Show is the big project for design students in the first year. Your initiation. No matter what direction you want to go in, fashion, journalism, styling, photography, you produce your own show and everything that goes with it: the invitations, lights, music, advertising, everything. There is a lot of attention."

Sarah Gresty, BA Fashion Course Leader at CSM

"We should not prepare students for the world out there. We should prepare them to change the world out there… We have to get away from the idea that designers are only responsible for designing objects. Instead they have to become designers of situations and systems."

Jeremy Till, Head of Central Saint Martins
