The freshers week was actually really funn, I got to meet a lot of people from different courses, I feel like ravensbourne has a very friendly community of people anyways, everyone is really sociable and welcoming. There was loads of different activities it wasn't just going to clubs, there was movie nights and theatre tickets. I don't live in the accommodation, but I've visited my friends before and they are really chic and modern. However the rooms are very very tiny, your kitchen, bathroom and bedroom are all in one room, it's probably less than 10m2, altogether it's very tiny. Ravensbourne has a huge campus, what I like the most is that the rooms are huge, the classrooms don't actually have doors they are just open spaces. The open spaces allow you to work wherever and whenever you want, you don't need to book out rooms or anything. The open spaces are really welcoming, it allows you to socialise with people from other courses. We have a floor 4 which is the open space where you can eat lunch and chill with everyone from the courses. Fashion really pushes you outside of your comfort zone and pushes you to think outside of the box constantly !. My course tutors are amazing they really are supportive and always want you to push your ideas and fulfil your potential. They really take time to understand your aesthetic instead of trying to force and mould you into a past designer who has been and gone. We often have to juggle multiply projects at one time, which is very very hard and stressful most of the time but it teaches you discipline, time management and mental strength. The course allows you to be yourself as a designer, but it also teaches you how to build your brand. London is the best place to discovery yourself as an artist. There is so much inspiration from London museums, galleries, exhibitions and the abundance of culture and politics. London is the best place for entertainment, social events, research both primary and secondary, learning about religion & cultures as well as just diversity in general.
