About Ravensbourne University London

Our postgraduate courses scored 91% student satisfaction for creativity and design, and 93% satisfaction overall, according to the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey 2020.

We're an innovative, industry-focused university located at the heart of London’s newest creative community on the Greenwich Peninsula. We're champions of creativity and collaboration, dedicated to giving our learners the specialist skills and opportunities they need for outstanding careers in digital media and design. We have a community of approximately 2,600 students and offer practice-based digital media and design courses from foundation through to undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Driven by industry standards and supported by the latest high-performance technology, we produce highly employable and enterprising graduates. We are the top-ranked specialist university for graduate salaries in creative art and design, and have a strong track record when it comes to business creation. Alongside our student community, we have hosted more than 100 creative technology businesses through our Incubation unit, from award-winning production companies and digital agencies to internationally recognised fashion labels.

State-of-the-art facilities

Our postgraduate courses are based within our new, state-of-the-art Institute of Creativity and Technology in London's Design District. Each course is underpinned by the same academic concern: the desire to explore the point at which creativity and technology meet, embedding students in a dynamic, physical and conceptual matrix of practice. This unique academic framework is based on Ravensbourne's new 'design thinking/design doing' programme of study. It gives opportunities for single and cross-disciplinary study across three stages:

  1. Identify and ideate: to determine key area of focus
  2. Innovate: midpoint for deeper creative thinking
  3. Instigate and implement: the endpoint, bringing research into reality

Our postgraduate courses

Thanks to our strong ties with industry, each of our postgraduate students are assigned a key industry mentor, giving ‘real-world insight’ into industry practice, and supporting their entry into professional careers. This arms students with the best possible chance of achieving the career they really want. In addition, all postgraduate students have an opportunity, visa-restrictions notwithstanding, for onward entry into Incubation+ – a key department supporting start-up creative digital businesses.


We have a number of guides and resources on our website to help you take the next step in joining the Ravensbourne community.
