    Hi guys! I am 21 and am graduating next year in Modern languages and cultures (BA). Since I am quite disappointed with my degree (bad choice in a bad period of my life) I would like to start a new degree, i.e. BA Architecture and then a MA Architecture. If everything goes fine I should finish my studies at the age of 27, provided I get a BA in 3years and then an MA in 2years (in my country so I don't have to do the extra year of internship).Would it be too late to get into the field of Architecture at such an age? Thanks

    No, 27 is not too late to finish. If you stick with it you would probably be qualified by 30 which is by no means unusual in the profession.
