    Hi there

    Yeh, Lincoln is a really nice place, I prefer smaller town Unis as opposed to city ones as im from a rural background, they had a lot of nice accommodation options too. What is your first choice?

    I went to an open day last year for kent and basically fell in love with it its a really neat uni with lots of grass areas and canterbury isfull of uni students so there's a good atmosphere

    I also love the Architecture course that Kent offer, it seems a very hands on type of course. They had all the end of year displays up when I visited and they were all so much more exciting than the projects that I had seen from other Uni's.

    Yeah, its a neat uni but I guess its not the best looking. I think its because its not really old and its not ultra modern either so there isnt that wow factor. Having said that, when I went it was a gorgeous sunny day and we sat on the grass for lunch and the trees were all really colourful, so it was hard not to fall in love with it really

    Really depends on the uni so if money an issue I would research into the costs for where you're going. Printing for us is around £1.10 A1 if you provide the paper, £1.60-£4.00 if not, model making is EXPENSIVE, no getting around this really unless your uni provides materials. Laser cutting around £10 p/h, again you provide materials. Field trips paid for by you. Although as I said this can vary massively depending on where you study, do your homework uni specific, hope that kind of helps

    Thanks, I know that it will differ but its nice to have a rough estimate. Looks like I'm right when I said Architecture is going to be an expensive course Hopefully its worth it though

    I'm at Greenwich. It's hard to say as some months you'll hardly spend anything (I have A3 printer at home so print on this for tutorials). For a crit I will usually print A2 which can cost around £25 (and you end up binning the work as needs changing etc). Portfolio print out can cost anything from £50-£100 for me. I am actually going to buy an A1 printer as it will save so much stress. The thing which I didn't mention before was BOOKS. You will spend a lot of money on books, and even on ebay this can rack up. I've spent £30 on books in the past week. My unit is all computer based this year so I don't even need to pay for pens, A1 drawing board etc, all of this stuff costs a small fortune. Architecture is a very expensive degree unfortunately, but only buy as you need, don't go out and buy everything on the equipment list as chances are you won't use half of it...

    London is amazing. Offer from Westminster is good. Greenwich and Westminster are similar, my tutor also teaches there although Westminster is more highly regarded than Greenwich! Good luck with wherever you choose!

    It really depends where you go, some courses subsidise printing and material cost more than others. For example at Newcastle they say the cost of printing is much higher because it isn't subsidised as heavily as Northumbria for example. They say it is because they spend more on tutors, but who knows!

    However this year, when fees go up some printing and material costs will be paid for you, or will be put on a university card for you to use when you want. This is definitely the case at Sheffield and Newcastle sent me an email saying something similar, so I'm sure most will do the same. Also Sheffield said that they include some of the trips in the cost of the course now, the ones which are needed for the course anyway.

    im just finishing first yr at westminster, it good. The tutors are hard but fair, so expect to put the work in and you'll be fine. Westminster is handy for exhibitions and inspirational visits, as you're already in town.

    Hi! I have a conditional from London met and another from Westminster, I heard that London met (eventhough it's ranked lower) is way better, any ideas on that?
