London has once again dominated the Fashion Schools Rankings, with five schools featuring in the top 10, more than any other city in the world. Central Saint Martin’s has retained number one spot in the rankings that look at three key factors; learning experience, influence and value.
Also featured in the world’s top 10 are London College of Fashion (2), Kingston University (4), and Royal College of Art (10). Also in the top 10 is Instituto Marangoni, one of Italy’s top design school which has a campus in central London (8). University of Westminster and Ravensbourne also feature amongst the world’s best, coming in at 11th and 20th respectively.
