Hi,
I got offer into architecture course (K100), second year, of these three universities. Now, having a difficult time to choose which one to go. I like the architecture studio in Liverpool, but it seems Cardiff has a better course. (it is better in rankings.)

I am planning to do the stage 2 at architectural association school, so I wish to know which school will make me be better prepare for AA? And I am interested to know anything about these three schools or the cities.
( I am an international student, so impossible for me to visit the school before I make a firm choice on UCAS.)

Thankssss

Brookes would probably be better preparation for the AA but Cardiff is overall better.

You make the AA sound like Valhalla and Cardiff/Brookes are the Little Chef on the A456.

They're all ranked in the top 10 so I imagine the differences between them are negligible.

I'd go for Cardiff, though. Simply based on its overall rep.

The AA does a good job of marketing itself with international students.... they certainly love their overseas $$$ at Bedford Square, that much is sure.

That's true but every school loves their oversea's $$$. I hate to say if but judging from some foreign students work I've seen the entrance standards are definitely lower but then it's not really the same.
