About Ravensbourne

Ravensbourne's innovative and leading-edge provision in the digital technologies will help advance your career and hone your skills and knowledge within the ever-evolving world of creative and digital media.

Studying for a postgraduate qualification at Ravensbourne will enable you to explore your particular specialism in-depth, whilst engaging in opportunities for collaboration with other disciplines across our postgraduate community. Our multi-disciplinary environment, technology and resources will help you challenge existing digital media and design principles, and identify new ideas and ways of thinking.

All our courses are designed to enhance your capabilities creatively and contextually whilst also allowing you to undertake rigorous intellectual enquiry in your chosen discipline. You will benefit from a network of internal and external specialists who will help develop your practice and abilities.

Our unique collaborative approach means you will work with other postgraduate students on shared projects some of which may be live industry briefs. For example, a number of postgraduate students worked with the UK banking industry and the Metropolitan Police to produce an interactive training resource to educate bank staff about criminal approaches. And other teams have been commissioned to produce films and animation for the Illuminating York festival, and a building video projection installation for Greenpeace that was used to launch their Save the Arctic campaign.

Ravensbourne gains Silver award in Teaching Excellence Framework

The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) has awarded Ravensbourne with Silver for its excellent quality of teaching. The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) has been introduced by the government to monitor and assess the quality of teaching in England’s universities/higher education institutions. It is designed to give students clear information about where teaching quality is at its best and where students have also achieved the best outcomes.

Ravensbourne was commended for its commitment to recruiting students from a diverse range of backgrounds, for its practice-based approach to learning through activities such as industry projects, and for its excellent digital resources. These, together with extensive industry partnerships have resulted in 95.3% of our students being employed or going on to further study within 6 months of graduation - a figure higher than the national average.
