Ravensbourne Open Day: Saturday 24 October 2015
Thank you for your interest in attending the Ravensbourne Open Day Event on: 24 October 2015.
Only students need to register their information- guests can attend without registering.
Our subject specific Open Days are designed to enable you to experience first-hand what it is like to study with us. During the event you can attend subject talks, take a tour of our campus, facilities and meet with our friendly teams of staff and students.
We are situated next door to The O2; just 5 minutes away from North Greenwich tube and bus station. There is O2 paid parking space nearby.
Outline of the day
Doors will open and registration will begin at 11:30am. Early birds that arrive before this time can grab a coffee or an early lunch in a wide range of local coffee shops and restaurants nearby.
Once you have registered at reception you will be ushered to a welcome talk. Subject talks will then start at 12.30pm and will last for one hour. After this you can attend another (repeated) subject talk at 2.00pm or visit members of staff in a dedicated visitors lounge to talk about admissions and the facilities on offer at our campus. We will also be running portfolio and showreel sessions.
At 3.00pm there will be another opportunity to ask questions about admissions, accommodation and finance led by support staff and an Associate Dean. Refreshments will be provided. The event ends at 4.00pm.
Prospective students may attend the event with family or a friend. However, due to limited space on the subject talks, guests may be invited to relax in a designated chill-out space. We therefore advise guests to bring a book, magazine or electronic entertainment to make best use of their time between sessions.
We hope that you enjoy your visit, as well as take advantage of our unique location on the Greenwich Peninsula amongst coffee shops, restaurants, pubs and The Emirates Sky ride. Why not plan other activities too.
