    I'm currently studying graphic design and that's the path I want to go down as I want to do architecture however my new school doesn't offer A level graphic design, only product design. I wanted to know if this is similar to graphic design or if it's more resistant materials based

    Ohhh I do RM atm...I have chosen PD as well.....I think it's mainly a bit of both!
    Would you say it's still art based ? Design is the only thing I'm good at really

    I'm a year 13 with my last product design exam today. I'm heading for architecture in September but also did graphic design at GCSE.

    Product design is perfect for architecture, I love it, it's even better than graphic design and really interesting to study. The skills you learn in graphic design help loads and you get to make whatever you like with real life clients. The only 'art' you do is sketches (that can be really poor quality tbf) to show and demonstrate your designs

    Hey Chris! Congrats on getting into an architecture course!!! I'm currently in year 12, studying Product Design, Physics, Maths, and Biology and I'm hoping to apply to places like Bath, UCL and Cardiff for architecture. Only trouble is, I'm really worried I won't get any offers because most unis want art students and they might think I'm lacking in art skills because I took Graphic Design GCSE and I'm taking Product Design at A-level instead of fine art, which they seem to really really like. I'm hoping my DT qualifications will demonstrate my technical aptitude and creativity but I feel like that won't be enough and I'm worried my portfolio will be rubbish. How did you do it? Did your unis have any problem with you taking DT subjects instead of art?
