Welcome to CSM

“You are joining a unique community of artists, designers and performers.

Our aim is to make CSM a key cultural institution on the national and international stage and in so doing enhance your experience of being a student here.

Last year we hosted over 500 public facing events. My advice is to subscribe to our weekly events newsletter on the homepage of our website, and look out for all the events going on outside your curriculum - they are an important part of the overall experience.

If you have suggestions as to how the college could get better, please tell us. If things are going well, tell us. It is only by working together that we can develop CSM as one of the best places in the world to study art, design and performance.”
