I've heard Bristol UWE is excellent for this. Take a look.
Your best bet is looking for your ideal course, do a UCAS search and take a look at the programme in detail and see whether it suits you.
You'll have to check whether you need A-Level Art but if you do on a certain course and you'd really like to apply for the course you can always do foundation art after your A-Levels at a University or College before undertaking the Undergraduate programme.
The best schools of architecture in terms of the quality of work, employers opinions and competition for places are: UCL Sheffield University Glasgow School of Art.
Bath, Cambridge, Cardiff (and maybe the AA) are also very well respected. Westminster seems to have won a few of RIBA awards recently but there seems a greater difference between the best and worst work than other schools and student dropout and satisfaction is not so good. It all depends what u are in to really, some schools put greater emphasis on design, some on CAD, some on engineering, others on environmental stuff. You can study without A level art but many of the best schools base their decision on a portfolio because of the number of applicants with 3As+ so it is important to be creative and imaginative.
Bath!!! I already doing it there so it instantly better!! :P
I have friends in ucl and they hate it...I mean we both suffer from excessive sleep deprivation. You wont have much of a life anyway so you might a well go somewhere quiter and cheaper.. sheifield and other non london unis are good as well.
what you mean is ...it takes a total of five years to get a march degree... three years for part one (riba) and two years for part two....thats one year less than other colleges.?
no what i mean is you go to university for one year to do your part 2 at cardiff. you work for one year, then you have one year full time at cardiff. that means you are working for a year longer than people on other part 2 courses who have 2 years full time academia. you have a year of (hopefully) working and earning money when others are studying.
This is really helpful. Can you tell me which universities offering architecture are arts based pleased?
…. or more artsy than engineering maths-focussed? I’m guessing from comments above that UCL is? I find it hard to tell from online course descriptions. Am keen on Edinburgh, Bath, Cardiff, Nottingham, Oxford Brookes, Sheffield, Newcastle & Manchester…
