Qualification requirements

At Ravensbourne we take a transparent approach to admissions, as we want you to know exactly what you need to achieve in your exams to guarantee a place on the course. This doesn't mean our standards are lower, in fact the average UCAS tariff of our students is higher than some other universities in London, so you'll be joining a diverse community of creatives. We still think exams are important and look forward to hearing about your successes in the summer, but we place more importance on the work you will share with us as part of our interview and/or portfolio process.
