    Hi I just wanted to ask a question about what kind of career pathways I could do after finishing my BA undergrad in architecture, as I've decided to not do my part 2.

    My plan is that I would like to get in to graphics design, so My question here is if that's possible to do with a degree in architecture or would I have to do some sort of 6 month course or online course etc? I know UAL do some courses during summer which are cool. Are there any architects who have gone on to the graphics design field I would love to hear your story.
    Also any advice from graphic designers or anyone who is studying it would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks!

    Hey,

    It might be worth getting in contact with the HR department of an architect firm and asking them what sort of qualifications they would like to see for the graphic design aspect? Some places might be more flexible than others
