    When applying last year I looked at both AUB or LCC but lots of people i knew were saying Ravensbourne. Ravensbourne is quite good in my opinion. Very practical if thats what you like. The lecturers are lovely but some of the lecturers can be long winded but some of them are just to prepare you for your termly presentation due, although they still teach you very important things. Please feel free to ask me specific questions

    personally I found Ravensbourne suited my needs (practical, london based, lots of industry opportunities) but its up to you what feels better. I can't remember what AUB offers, but I do know a friend of mine, his boyfriends at AUB and transferring to Rave next year

    Hey there

    I'm currently a student in Ravensbourne and I study design products! However, I've collaborated with film students and TV broadcasting before and from what I can see they absolutely know their stuff! The quality of the short films they produced while working with them was amazing! and from what I've heard they benefit for being in that course as they enjoy it and they have access to any high tech material in Ravensbourne! Not to mention that they've been seen my other industries they could work with after Graduation

    Good luck

    I'm currently applying for universities and I'm interested in film production and I've heard Ravensbourne is a good choice.

    I'm interested in film-making, directing, producing, script-writing, editing and pre/post-production. Would Ravensbourne be suitable for me?

    Hey Grade,

    Yes, Ravensbourne sounds like it suits you. Within the film production course, they teach you these areas you are interested in. You can also collaborate with others.

    Hi ethanl7,

    To give an honest reply, I would say it depends on what you want to do at the end of the degree.

    For me, Ravensbourne has acted as a hub to learn, create work to build my portfolio and most importantly network with other students. I’ve met a lot of creative people here (tutors and peers) and it is an institution with lots of industry connections. This has enabled me to work part-time on various sets and meet many industry professionals in varying roles. The Central Loan Resources (CLR), an on-campus equipment library, is very well equipped, and we are also familiar with external hire companies.

    If considering between Ravensbourne, AUB and LCC, I would say that Ravenbourne will allow you to develop as a filmmaker and you’re also based in London which is the main HUB for filmmakers and only here you will establish your network, which is key for industry.

    I hope that this helps.

    Let me know if you have other questions,

    Helen
