Ravensbourne University London

Ravensbourne University London

The Institute for Creativity and Technology - A hub for postgraduate opportunities with a difference.

In Autumn 2020, Ravensbourne University London will launch its brand-new Institute for Creativity and Technology.

Utilising a common academic framework based on Ravensbourne’s new design thinking/design doing staged programme of study, the GradSchool will enable opportunities for single and cross-disciplinary study as well as access to key industry mentors.

GradSchool is home to a forward‑thinking, industry-focussed, career-relevant suite of postgraduate courses designed for, and with, the creative industries.  It is a creative studio space for our community of postgraduate students studying at the intersection of creativity and technology to hot-desk and inhabit.

We offer students immediate access to our strong ties with industry through our unique industry-based mentorship programme and our incubation unit, designed to support creative start-ups. 

Our Postgraduate programmes

Design, Communication and Technology MA
Global communication is expanding and the demand for distinct and coherent messaging is growing. As a result, there is an immediate and growing need for practitioners who can understand, question, and shape both content and its method of delivery across multiple platforms and channels.

Our Design, Communication and Technology MA caters to this demand by allowing you to develop your thinking and practice at the intersection of creativity, communication and technology.

The course recognises that technology moves quickly and that the skills and techniques learned within particular suites of software or in particular modes of delivery, like any dynamic system it will evolve and change.

This programme reflects and contributes to the expanding nature of visual communication and focuses on two key aims. Firstly, the generation of the most appropriate responses to the need for creative communication; and secondly, the development of a broad understanding of the potential of technology in the creation, coordination and delivery of communication.

Fashion Design, Management and Innovation MA
The global fashion retail industry is worth 1.3 trillion dollars, not including footwear or jewellery. It is continuously in a state of flux, growth, change, and faces a number of challenges now and in the future.

Our Fashion Design, Management and Innovation MA aims to equip you with the creative and critical faculties along with the practical skills needed to address these challenges and issues. How? By offering you the chance to develop your thinking and practice at the point where fashion, ethical design production and cultural phenomena meet.

You will be exposed to the ideas of theory, the craft and skill involved in the design and manufacture process. This course also explores the different possible meanings of luxury and the specialised approaches to small scale manufacturing while keeping an eye on sustainability and materiality.
