    It is sort of understandable as it's 2nd in the world and has been 1st in the UK for architecture for the past decade odd..
    (^if 2000 people apply and 100 get in then it's 20 applicants/place aha)

    Just had my interview today at UCL.. Felt very rushed (may be as I was last to be interviewed). Not really sure how it went.. There were good points and points I reckon not so good..
    I was wondering whether there was a significance as to the order in which you are interviewed?
    Did they ask many questions about your portfolio? I have mine on the 15th and I have no idea what to expect

    I wasn't asked much about my portfolio because I generally just talked/commented about it as she was going through it. It is incredibly casual and there really isn't anything that can be prepared for. It seemed to be mainly them trying to get to know you and your motivations

    Just sort of what your reasoning was for them and why you chose the medium you did.

    It means what media/materials you used to produce the work; watercolour, charcoal, graphite, etc.

    For all the international/eu students: What is your motivation to study architecture in the UK and not elsewhere?

    I just think that the UK could help me grow more, because it's such an important country in trade, art and economy. I also really love the culture, people seem to be very nice and respecting of other peoples personal space. (italians are really invasive) I also think that the UK would challenge me more than my home country. I'm from Italy and here we don't have cities such as London, where most famous architects found success... I also want to get more confident with my english by using it on a daily basis. I'm willing to work hard and I think that the UK is the best place for people willing to do so.

    I didnt keep a copy of mine but they were essentially observational drawings in pencil and pen of rooms in my house from different viewpoints e.g. from top of the fridge, behind a door, tc
