If you are a further education student you need to complete an enrolment form and bring a print copy with you when you visit us. An email will be sent to you as soon as the form is available.


To complete your enrolment you need to visit us on the day allocated to your course. Dates for enrolment will be confirmed nearer to enrolment time - please remember to check this page regularly for updates.


You must bring the completed paperwork below with you:


UK students

You must bring original certificates of your exam results, particularly your Maths and English certificates - you will need to make sure you get your original certificates from your school or college.

International and EU students

If your original certificates are not in English, you must bring a certified translation of your certificates.



Please note: 


Enrolment day can be very busy so we do recommend that students do not bring guests as you are unlikely to see very much of each other during the day. Once enrolled, you need to join us for your formal induction (details for this coming soon). 


We are unable to provide on-site parking and recommend that you travel to Ravensbourne by public transport.


Ravensbourne Laptop Bursary Scheme 2018

How much is the bursary?

For the academic year 2018/19, a £300 bursary is available for undergraduate students who purchase a computer suitable for their course.  Students may purchase their computer through their normal supplier or through our partner, FreedomTech, who will offer the opportunity of paying in instalments.

Students can only make ONE claim for this bursary during their time as an Undergraduate student at Ravensbourne. Currently, students can claim this award during any point of their 3 year course. However, this could change in future years.

Further information about the scheme and details of how to order via FreedomTech can be found here.


  • All First Year Undergraduate Students.

Students who wish to make a claim for this bursary, must make their claim between enrolment and before the end of the taught elements of their course, prior to formal graduation.  

The £300 bursary amount applies only for the academic year of 2018/19. Please be advised, in subsequent years this scheme may change. 

Students are entitled to an additional £200, payable in April 2019, if they

  • have a household income of £25,000 or under, as disclosed to Student Finance England.
  • have claimed the £300 laptop bursary
