Any mature students that have applied to ravensbourne? Watch
1: do you need a reference to apply for a HE course?
2: what advice/ tips can you give for a supporting statement ? or is this not necessary?
Hope all is well! It depends on the Higher education course you are applying for. I would suggest getting in contact with the university that you are looking to apply to as it differs from course to course.
Ravensbourne is an innovative, industry-focused university located in the hearty of London only 30 seconds away from The O2 Arena. We encourage creativity and collaboration and are dedicated to giving our students the specialist skills and opportunities they need for outstanding careers in digital media and design.
At Ravensbourne we offer two different types of Access to Higher Education courses: Access to Higher Education (Design) and Access to Higher Education (Digital Media) and for these courses, the application specify's its necessary for you to get either an academic tutor or employer to write a reference for you about your academic abilities or creative skills in support of your application;however, if there are any issues with this that means you are not able to have someone write a reference for you, I would suggest getting in contact with the admissions department.
In addition to this, I would reccomend that you come to an open day at Ravensbourne to have a chat with the tutors ad also have a look around the university to get a feel if its the place for you so I would suggest you do the same for your prospective university courses you maybe interested, in as this is where you can ask questions and be given some more support as to what to include in your supporting statements.
I hope this is helpful and all the best with everything
