Thanks to its eco-friendly design and dazzling good looks, the building swiftly won the RIBA award for best Higher Education building in 2011.

Greenwich Peninsula

Ravensbourne is located at the heart of London’s newest permanent creative community on the Greenwich Peninsula.  We’re nestled beside the O2 arena, with views stretching across the River Thames, to Canary Wharf, Maritime Greenwich and beyond.

BPP University London City study centre is the home of our Professional Qualification and Business School programmes. Located on the Square Mile, next to ‘The Gherkin’ and Lloyd’s of London, it is at the heart of the City.

The Tide: London’s first elevated park

The Tide is London’s first-ever elevated riverside linear park, and it’s right on our doorstep. Running from Peninsula Square and along the riverside, it’s currently 1km in length, and will be 5km when completed. That’s longer than the High Line in New York.

This swirl of raised, landscaped walkways and sunken parks, is lined with native trees, grasses and wildflowers, reaching 9m at its highest point. What’s more, it offers wooden sun loungers along the river banks, for a spot of sunbathing between lessons or some quiet time for creative thought.

Cherry on the cake is Damian Hurst’s Mermaid and work by a host of other artists. Ever seen a slice of ship? You will here.

Societies and clubs

From film to beauty there’s a society or club for everyone.

I think one of the main reasons the IIM (pre-masters) has been so helpful is because the staff are so supportive and are always able to help me. Whether it is understanding a module or finding out how to sort accommodation, they will help you with everything. I’ve enjoyed studying at Bangor, the people are friendly, and the environment is also really peaceful and safe. It’s given me the best opportunity to succeed in my studies here in the UK.
