    I think that is highly unlikely; the course would go bust Universities budget on students completing all three years of their degrees - if they drop out after a year or two, they lose that revenue and would not be able to afford to pay the staff on the course or keep the resources maintained. Obviously it would be better if someone from Ravensbourne answered you, but I would be very surprised if this was true.

    Sounds like a rubbish business plan. As said above they work on the basis they get £30k. They dont care too much whether people flunk, but they do care about being paid.

    Dear rosieridleyx,

    We can confirm that this is untrue and we are very happy to arrange a call with the course leader, for any prospective students wanting to discuss any concerns.

    Thank you,

    I heard a rumour that you can only get a first for fashion if you can run 100m in 20 seconds while carrying scissors...:teehee:
