    I need help with my choices. I've applied to the Bartlett, Westminster, Coventry, Kingston and Oxford Brookes. I've received offers from 4 (not the Bartlett). I'm not rejected from the Bartlett however I'm pretty sure I've been rejected after this long wait. So what I wanted to ask is what's the best university for me to go for? In terms of what they want: Westminster (AAB) : Kingston (320 points). Coventry (unconditional) and Oxford Brookes is unconditional too.

    What university would you guys recommend I go for? I mean in terms of my choices, I know with AAB i could've applied to some higher universities but Im pretty sure I wanted to stay around London. With the following exceptions in my choices.

    What do you guys think is the best and will help in terms of the employment etc, would really appreciate some feedback. Cheers.
    I've decided on Westminster mainly on the basis that I wanted to study in London, and it was the only university I applied to located there besides UCL (from which I didn't receive an offer). I was really sceptical about Westminster due to their ranking, and at first considered staying in Manchester to study at MSA, but honestly Westminster's facilities are so so good. Their fabrication laboratory is, quite frankly, unrivalled in London (but I doubt this will still be the case when the new Bartlett building is complete haha). Also, personally I think being in London is so important due to industry links and the fact that it is a thriving metropolis with so much going on... the possibilities in the capital are endless... something which I believe would be essential as an architecture student/.

    It depends on your priorities at the end of the day; which studios do you prefer, what city do you want to live in, which way would you like to work in. don't look at what school is most respected... because at the end of the day, all the schools are good schools. wherever you go, you will come out with a Part 1... Architecture is what YOU make of it.

    thank you! I feel like their facilities are a lot better compared to ucl, and when i visited, i could see myself being a student there more than i can at ucl. Im a bit more excited about studying at westminster than studying at the bartlett for some reason!

    I just got an unconditional from UCL!
    Congratulations! That's fantastic) Must be so nice with unconditionals having gotten your A-Level results; and incredible results at that! Well done
    Can't wait to be free of A-levels..

    Remember that the building that the Bartlett has for architecture is only temporary, and will be moving into the new one end of this year/beginning of next, so make sure to take that into consideration when deciding as I would imagine their facilities will be greatly improved!

    All the best with making your decisions!

I would really appreciate the feedback

    Hey there, from the point of view of rankings, Bath would be better but it depends on what you want. IDK about Cardiff and Kent but I know that Bath is more focused on the science part of architecture than on the design part. BTW I'm doing the IB as well, feels nice to find somebody else who knows the struggle

    Good luck I firmed Northumbria with an unconditional, loved the facilities and although newcastle is higher ranked, it just didn't have as much to offer I felt! Which one would you prefer?
