Hi guys,

I'm mature student thinking about accepting an offer to start studying Architecture at London Met next September.. Can someone comment about the quality of the Architecture departement there? Education, tutors, lecturers, studios, workshops, connections with employers, etc..

It seems the University doesn't have a good reputation, it doesn't appear in rankings, and also I read a bit about the crisis it went through... However from end of the year exhibitions it seems the departement of Architecture is good. I'm 30 and I would like to make the right choice for the next 3 years!

Thanks!

That doesn't tell me how good is their architecture departement. From unistats.com and the publication of results of national surveys there it seems students are pretty happy about it and from end of the year exhibition it seems pretty good too, but I would like the review of a student that has been there or is currently studying there please!!!

Their architecture is one of the best courses in the country, probably behind only Sheffield and the AA.

Their recent reviews have all been ranked higher than Bartletts, UCL.

I have only good things about their architecture course but bad things about the rest of the school

Hello! I just finished my first year at London Met studying BA Architecture. I think its provides a very well rounded learning experience. When you're in the design studio, tutors are available to give you advice on your project. The workshop is large and has a great range of equipment, in the first week your given a workshop tutorial on how to use some of the equipment. the lectures are long (so be sure to bring a cup of coffee with you' but crucial, providing you with important information on how to go about doing your projects. the course is organized and you receive feedback every time you see your tutor. the library is further down the road (at the North Campus) but it is worth it, as the Architecture section is vast. Its good quality education, and despite London met's 'less than great' general reviews, its architecture department is one of the best in the UK. You learn about the history of architecture, technology and materials, design processes, and many architectural firms come over to give talks about their projects so you have access to people who are in the business, and asking questions is more than welcome. Its a very intense course, with a heavy workload and a number of different modules to work through, 'ability to pull all nighters' should probably be mentioned in the course requirements, but managing time and work will definitely help make this course enjoyable and insightful

This may sound stupid, but i was wondering what sort of bag should architecture student have, can it be any bag like a satchel or should it be a big rucksack?

Many thanks!

Hey, I know this is really late but I also applied to the London Metropolitan Uni Architecture and Interior Design foundation degree. I want to know how good it is, if it helped you develop any artistic skills, whether you recommend it and if you went on to do a BA Architecture course.
Would really appreciate a response, thanks.
