    I recently discovered that i want to study Architecture at university. However i am finding it very difficult to decided on the universities i want. The only thing i know for a fact is that i want to study in the UK, and preferably a foundation year (just to make sure that this is what i want), also the subjects i took for IB, limit me to only doing a bachelor of arts, as i didn't take subjects like physics and Hl math, but i took HL art. I would really find it useful if you are in the same position or if you already went through a similar thing.

    Not very many places do an architecture foundation, even fewer places with a good reputation for design. I know that the Architectural Association does one, but you might be a bit late (and it is rather expensive).

    Places never ask for a foundation year, so there is no need to have that anyway. A lot of places don't need maths and physics per se; the Bartlett, Sheffield and many other places don't really ask for these.

    Either way, you ought to get cracking if you are going for 2017 as the deadline is only a few months away. Good luck!

    Oxford Brookes does a fantastic foundation called Built Environment. It isn't specifically about architecture, rather more designing/ planning. It will lead you into the first year of the architecture course at Oxford Brookes. Art foundations are also a good choice because you can direct it towards designing buildings; building up a portfolio will help you get into a good architecture course. Good luck!

    Thank you so much, this is very helpful, yeah I decided to apply to more foundation years rather then specific course since I'm a bit indecisive. So If you have anymore ideas of where I should apply for foundation years in the uk that would be amazing. So far I have looked at -Kingston, UAL, Leeds and I'm still in the process of looking for more
