Ravensbourne was established in 1959 by the amalgamation of Bromley School of Art and the Department of Furniture Design of Beckenham School of Art. It was originally at Bromley Common and Chislehurst in outer London. It moved to a purpose-built campus in inner London on the Greenwich Peninsula in September 2010.

Ravensbourne offers Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Further Education programmes taught in a single faculty with two main clusters of courses, Design and Production. At undergraduate level, there are Foundation degrees, honours degree level top-up years (for those having completed foundation degrees or equivalent), and Bachelor’s degrees. A number of these bachelor’s degrees also offer a “Level 0” programme. The available postgraduate provision consists of 14 Master’s level courses, each of which can be studied to MA, MDes or MSc (dependent on subject). A range of subject areas are offered within the main disciplines of fashion, design and broadcasting.
