Prime Video have donated a studio desk and chairs to Ravensbourne University London, to be used by our BA (Hons) Digital Television Production students.

Ravensbourne University London’s BA (Hons) Digital Television Production course is highly respected by industry and has an incredible 90% employability rate, thanks in part to students getting hands-on experience working in industry from their second year.

To support this, Prime Video has donated the studio desk setup from their live tennis coverage to give students the chance to learn their craft with the same equipment used by the likes of iconic broadcasters such as Catherine Whitaker, Greg Rusedski, and Tim Henman.

This donation supports the future generation of creatives in their journey to becoming successful in the television industry.

Ravensbourne University London currently has students currently working on placements at ITV, earning experience on the sets of hugely influential shows, including ‘Love Island’, ‘Big Brother’, and ‘Good Morning Britain’.

Past students have also worked with household brands such as ITN and Prime Video. Recently, a past student came back to teach at Ravensbourne, having worked on set for ‘Lorraine’ and ITN.

The course is one of only eight in the country offering the opportunity of a placement at the BBC during the third year of study. It is experiences like these that contribute towards Ravensbourne generating industry-ready students.

Gianpaolo Bucci, course leader of BA (Hons) Digital Television Production, said: "This generous donation will allow us to make our projects more ambitious and give students a better flavour of what it is like to work in the television industry. This ultimately helps to prepare our students for the real world once they start their careers, which can be clearly seen in our 90% employability rates."
