Best Universities For Architecture???Watch this thread
Also, I'm doing A-Levels in Maths Mechanics, Physics, Geography and ICT but will I be able to study Architecture at university without A-Level Art?
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.
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.
Oxford Brookes is actually quite good if you're running low on tariff points.
UCL would be a lot of peoples top choice, but its very arts based so it might not suit those who are purely technically minded.
Portfolio not A-Level.
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.
please correct me if i am wrong.
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.?
