Studying Architecture at London MetWatch
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!
nobody studying architecture at london met at BA level ?
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
just firmed my place for Architecture, but im starting with year 0, the extended degree, as with no art background, i think i will struggle, so it does seem like the best idea! Cant wait to go!
Would really appreciate a response, thanks.
