A report in British newspaper The Sun suggested the rapper was hoping to build on his design skills by applying for a place at Central Saint Martins College and met with school administrators last week (02Mar11) for an interview.

But the school's press officer, Jo Ortmans, insists Kanye West's recent visit to the educational institute had nothing to do with wanting to study there.

In an email to MTV, Jo Ortmans writes, "Kanye West is not enrolling in (the) MA Fashion (program) at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. He visited the college last week on unrelated matters."
