      Everyday expenses

      Rent and travel in London is where all the money goes. I spend 440 a month approx on rent and electric and 50.40 a month on a student bus pass on a student oyster card Many of my friends buy tube and bus travel cards for a month at over 80 which I can't afford There are always work opportunities at the O2, the pay is good and you get to work casually and in 5 hour shifts, which is good as student life is busy already. As soon as my loan comes in I always take out all of my rent money and trade so that I know everything left, I can spend. Due to this, I've never run into money trouble. Only additional costs are for student films...which you can claim on expenses if for a uni assessment, but it takes a few weeks to come through.

      Everyday expenses

      Ravensbourne is next to the O2 arena so there is lots of opportunities for part time work. Lots of students also find freelance work in their study area due to Ravensbourne's contacts. Of course being next to the O2 means that the uni is in London so living isn't cheap but this does mean there is great transport links to the rest of the city. There is lots of food and drink outlets nearby such as the restaurants in the O2 or more cheaper alternatives such as Subway and Tesco.

    • Accommodation

      No halls of residence! Everyone lives far away from each other, meaning the only social time is during uni classes really.

      Academic Experience

      I found my year at ravensbourne to be both educational and fun. The tutors were extremely helpful and gave minimal one lecture a week which helped inspire us on our brief as well as advice for future tasks. The briefs set for my course also allowed every individual to come up with their own response and we also were made to attend small crits at the en of every week so we could share and bounce our ideas and give eachother advice on how to progress our ideas further. We also had written assignments to do where we were given ideas on how to research and produce individual answers.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.

More on what university league tables really tell you.

This institution doesn’t feature in any of the three main league tables, most likely because it’s small or specialist and there isn’t enough data to create a ranking. In a small number of cases some universities have opted out appearing in certain league tables.

Where it's located

We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
