    If I Had the chance to apply there I would have sure applied! Good luck on your interview! AA is as competitive as the Bartlett! They are both really good schools!

    The AA School is not included in the top university rankings because it is a private uni. However, it is the oldest architectural school in the UK and is well known worldwide for it's many Pritzker Prize winners/graduates including Zaha Hadid. Both UCL and the AA School are sort of even i guess, it really depends on whether their architecture course suits you! good luck
    Well actually the oldest school of architecture in the UK is the Bartlett school as it was founded in 1841 while the AA was founded in 1847. But the age of the school shouldn't really affect your choice too much, it depends on whether you want to do a highly art based course or one that leans more to art and design application.

    i meant independent, but thanks for the correction
    It's okayyy I just get really pedantic over details haha. In my UCL interview I was asked if I knew the structure of the courses and told him I'd applied to the AA last year and gotten a place but chose not to take it as it was super expensive. He seemed annoyed/mad that I thought it was a good school and I have no idea why haha. He was like 'Oh I could tell you A LOT of things about the AA'. I thought I'd messed up so bad haha

    Yeah, I just did this Tuesday. It was very short ~ 15 minutes and I feel like I don't have time to present everything that I brought. I saw the interviewer ticked all the boxes haha, shouldn't be too bad btw do you mind showing me your portfolio so I can see the standard of getting into the Bartlett.

    So basically we talked about the assessment task at first, I spent around 3-4 minutes on that. I brought two sketch books and 7 pieces of work also some life drawings (which he ignored). I wouldn't suggest bring too many, just the ones that you are most confident with x
