What can this course do for me?

Our students ‘learn with industry’ engaging with professional practice throughout the course. In the last three years we have worked with global brands like Sky, Barclays and The O2 and leading creative studios such as Moving Brands, Studio Blup, Kin+Carta and JKR. Most recently, we were privileged to work with Apple on an exhibition called Unsigned Stories. Take a look below.

On the BA Hons Advertising & Brand Design at Ravensbourne, they bucked this trend and in the 2020 publication, We Are 906!  course leader Derek Yates used the Foreword to pay tribute to what the class had achieved.
