Central Saint Martins was formed from the merger of two historical art and design colleges, St Martin’s School of Art founded in 1854 and Central School of Arts & Crafts founded in 1896.The two colleges merged to become Central Saint Martins, bringing together their internationally renowned traditions into a new dynamic formation.

Today, CSM is one of the world’s premier arts, design and fashion colleges with a reputation based around the achievements of its graduates, current staff and students. CSM students are typically restless in developing beyond the accepted norms of their subject that places the college at the heart of London’s dynamic creative scene.

With its 150 years of history, CSM’s famous alumni include some of the most important British and international artists from famous painters such as Lucien Freud and Frank Auerbach who studied fine art at Saint Martin’s in the middle of the 20th century; to Sir James Dyson, the industrial designer and founder of Dyson Industries; A.S. Byatt, the British author; Colin Firth, the actor and winner of BAFTA’s Best Actor Award and to the latest wave of the world’s celebrated designers including Katharine Hamnett, Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney. www.arts.ac.uk/csm
