January open evening

Undergraduate & Further Education

Please note: We no longer offer the pre-foundation diploma course.

Ahead of the UCAS application deadline on 15 January we will be holding a subject-specific open evening, featuring all of our Ravensbourne foundation diploma and undergraduate degree courses.

We invite you to come and personally experience what it’s really like to study here. You will have the opportunity to enjoy a tour of our stunning building and facilities, attend a talk on your preferred subject and speak with some of our friendly staff and students. One of our accommodation partners, Scape at Greenwich, will also be offering tours of their accommodation facilities throughout the evening.

What can I expect from an open event?

As a visitor to one of our Open Days, you will typically listen to subject talks given by our academic staff, go on a tour of our building and facilities conducted by our Student Ambassadors, receive advice on student finance and accommodation, as well as have guidance on how to apply to study at Ravensbourne.

How do I register for an Open Day?

Please select the required type and number of tickets and complete the registration process to reserve your place. You will then receive an email confirmation of your booking. Prospective students interested in our postgraduate courses are invited to email postgrad@rave.ac.uk to book an appointment.

Who can attend?

Prospective students can attend together with their parents, friend or partner. We also welcome teachers and advisors. Please note that visitors under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Do I need to book a place?

Yes, we have a limited number of spaces available for each Open Day and so you really need to pre-register. You can reserve extra tickets if you would like to bring a relative or friend.

For health and safety reasons, we are not able to accommodate anyone who has not pre-registered.

Do I need to bring written confirmation of my booking with me?

While having a printed booking confirmation is not required upon check-in, however, having a paper ticket will help speed up the registration process.

What time do I need to arrive?

Our Open Day events start at 12pm (noon) and finish at 4pm.

Building tours are offered any time between 2.00-4.00pm on selected Wednesdays of each month.
