    Hi!
    I'm applying to the Bartlett in 2017.
    Do you usually need 4 subjects or 3?
    I'm doing art, math, psychology and further maths, and I want to drop to further maths and do an Epq, would that be a bad idea?

    Thankss
    Hey! You need 3 A levels and I think it's a good idea to drop further maths. Doing an EPQ is a great idea as it will provide you with so much stuff to say at interview stage.

    The RIBA regional award winners have been announced: https://www.architecture.com/Awards/...wards2016.aspx

    Lots of university buildings in there

    My favourites are definitely Alder Hey in the NW: https://www.architecture.com/Awards/...sHospital.aspx - I can't believe the transformation and the complete rethink of what a hospital should feel like. I had a stay here back in the 80s and it feels very much like the spirit of the staff and the children has been turned into an amazing building :yep:
    and the CRAB Drawing Studio at AUB in the SW: https://www.architecture.com/Awards/...ingStudio.aspx gorgeous inside and out :yes:

    not alot of that was asked from me, including ucl. i honestly don't even think most read my personal statement properly. As it seemed everyone who sumitted and had the grades, was offered a task and/or a submission of their portfolio online which lead to a 'real interview'. From there, you need to showcase your artwork and personality and your enthusiasm for the subject.

    Right I see! So there's no written elements that need research into books etc for your UCL application just the task then? Thanx a lot!

    How likely is it to get into UCL/Bartlett via Adjustment for Architecture? I got rejected quite a while ago at the interview stage but I'm still hoping there's still a chance since it has always been my dream uni. Is there anyone here who got in via adjustment or knows anyone that has, I know the chances are very slim but you never know what happens...

    Hey guys!

    I'm also thinking of applying for 2017 entry at UCL for Architecture! I'm studying art, maths, history and product design - I'm thinking of dropping product design! I also want to do an EPQ next year!

    I'm going to two summer schools this summer at: Cambridge University (Architecture) and UCL (Architecture) - will these seperate my personal statement from others? Thanks

    Hey guys I'm just thought it might be handing to reply to some of the messages. I applied for architecture to start in 2016 and I was fortunate to get offers including Ucl. I think going to their summer school or any summer with definitely help, I went to a Ucl summer school last year and they asked me about it lots during The interview and I think they like it as it shows passion.

    Doing and EPQ or any kind of extended project is a create idea as you can talk about it in your personal statement and lots of different universities will appreciate this. And read as many architecture books as you can and put those in your PS. Because you can't study architecture at A-level the aim is to show your passion actively for this area in anyway you can and over the summer is a great time to do this.
    Hope this helps x

    UCL haven't taken down their adjustment vacancy list from last year: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-stu...ion/adjustment

    I doubt that architecture would be an option for adjustment given that adjustment is only open for 5 calendar days and there's such a weighting on portfolio work for selection.
