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.×

Levy restaurant hold open 50 jobs at the beginning of every intake (they are jobs in the O2) just for students at ravensbourne. IF you want to save money, bring packed lunch and a flask. Dont socialise. Live in your castoffs you have worn since secondary school.×

It is very hard, the only cheap place in the uni area for food is tescos, but with the variety of restaurants close by it is easy to be tempted. There is little work opportunities going and halls is very expensive. For my first year i paid 700 a month rent (not including the admin fees to pay in 10 installments), i am moving into a place for my second year which is 360 a month, massive saving there but it took a while to find it. There is additional course costs, there is a pressure to buy a mac laptop from the uni, even with them taking the bursary they offer into account its still between 600-1000, for my course i had to get pictures professionally printed and mounted which cost roughly 70. As a nikon user, there is only roughly 2 nikon lenses in the uni for me to borrow and they are both very poor lenses, so I either have to buy my own or borrow a whole canon camera and use those lenses. I am constantly told that i should get used to using the canon cameras as it is good to be able to use both, but no canon user is told to use nikon, the biasing towards certain brands and companies is very pressuring and stressful as it is expensive things. Transport is fairly cheap but it does add up especially if you have a job and travel there as well. Having to travel at peak times for early lectures is more expensive and busy which is not particularly enjoyable or pleasent, the transportation is also very unreliable with constant delays or closures which is a hassle.×

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.×

library is small but has a varied collection. Building is new so very modern but plain. We have no student bar on campus but next to the O2 which has a bar we use as a student one at certain times of day as long as there isn't an event on. Right near major bus terminal and tube station so great for getting round london. Cant park anywhere unless you have lots of money.Tesco express is your friend for lunch time , or sub ways :) lots of places to eat, we do have a cafe....they are ok but tesco cheaper and have more variety. Starbucks, we have that within a minutes walk just inside the O2 :)×
