"yeahyeahyeahs" things related to the University of Westminster and positive and negative experiences there that could help me make up my mind on which uni to choose. She offered this sort of help in another thread and I thought that it'd be nice to hear from someone like her.
we can not make up your mind for which course or university is for you.
if i didnt reply to your pm, its because i rather not give out any impression on my university to you as it will influence your choice.
i rather not have you come up to me and tell me the university wasn't what you expected as you based your decision making on my opinion.
being an architecture student is a hard life. if you want to give up everything for the next 5 years in architectural education to be in some small bubble excluded by the outside world, then by all means continue.
you can kiss the social life, your disposable income, your free time good bye. whether you think these things are important or not important in your life at the moment. thats your choice.
going back to westminster or nottingham university, there isn't really much of a difference as you will get a riba part 1 at either universities. in the architectural industry both universities have a good reputation.
the only difference is your life might be easier at nottingham since everything is all 'on campus' and you wouldn't need to commute on the underground tube lines to get plotting paper and materials.
as for the question "Do you regret your choice?"
there is no such thing as 'passion' or 'soul' for architecture.
its called tolerance to mental and psychically pain. if you don't have this. you will not get through the course.
