Are you able to choose completely different courses when applying for University?

I want to study Architecture at University, but am afraid that I will not achieve the high grades, I wandered if you could choose for example, three architecture courses and two fine art courses just in case I dont get the grades to study Architecture.

If this was the case, would I have to write two different personal statements?

Thank you

You are not able to write two personal statements. One has to cover all the courses you apply for and admissions tutors can only see what you have applied for at their university, so unless you want to come across as uncommitted or unaware of what the course involves, make your mind up what you really want before you apply and write one ps just for that.

Just intergrate both subjects into your interests in your personnal statement. I applied for zoology and evolutionary anthropology and got accepted for both. Simple.

Your subjects are pretty similar so should be no problem.

Yeah thank you. Would it be best in my five choices to choose Architecture throughout?

If you really want to go for architecture (as in fine art would be a distant second choice) then yes. You will probably get in somewhere even if you really mess up your A levels. Your could chuck in a fine art course as back up though.

Yes, because architecture is competitive and they want people who really are dedicated to doing it. It's a long course to qualify. You need a completely different portfolio for fine art, so decide which one you want and specialise.

Ok that makes choosing universities a lot easier, thank you.
