These workshops are aimed towards students in Years 9 – 13 (including Access courses) who are thinking about higher education and looking to study at Ravensbourne.

Tester days and holiday schools
Our taster days are an opportunity to work with our academic staff and students to learn practical and digital skills.
They are a great way to get a feel for studying a creative subject at university, and experience the state of the art studios, workshops and facilities that we have to offer at Ravensbourne.
