We are committed to ensuring you are safe within the building from the minute you are part of our community. You will be briefed when you arrive on how to evacuate the building in the event of an alarm.

5. Ravensbourne Laptop Bursary Scheme 2018

The laptop bursary scheme is aimed at all first year undergraduate students starting a course in academic year 2018/19 and paying the full tuition fee. 

However, 2nd and 3rd year students may still apply if you have not previously benefited from the scheme*.

If you are a Foundation or Postgraduate student, you are NOT eligible to apply for the Ravensbourne Laptop Bursary Scheme**. Please speak to your tutor for further advice.

For more information on what laptops to get and how the scheme works please check out our Laptop Bursary Scheme

*Please note that whilst it is currently the policy of the Institution to permit students who do not claim the laptop bursary in their first year of study to claim in their second or third years, we would point out that the scheme is currently under review and we are unable to guarantee that the scheme will operate after 2018/19 academic year.

** Foundation & Postgraduate students are able to purchase a laptop through Ravensbourne's partner, FreedomTech, to benefit from being able to pay in instalments.



Please note:  if your course requires you to use a laptop you will need to bring one along from your first day of induction. Laptop specification requirements varies depending on the course and these can be seen on our Laptop Bursary Scheme.
