    Hello, I am currently studying maths, art and product design at a-level. I really don't know what university course to choose, or if I should go to uni at all. My preferred uni course would be product design or architecture, but I am worried that I might not be able to get a job in this area after uni. I have also looked at engineering, would this be a good choice if I am interested in design? Any advice or suggestions for uni Courses would be much appreciated! Thanks

    Depends on what you want to design. A huge amount of engineering is about design, but mainly more technical design rather than artistic design.

    Some engineering degress will want Physics A level so a website like Which uni ? might help.

    If you go for product design or engineering choose a course with a year in industry. Architecture is a long course and I'd avoid it unless you are sure.

    Hey James244,

    Why don't you think about going to open days to see first hand what you might be interested in?
    In some courses, they may focus on the engineering side of designs so it might help you see what you would like to work in.
    You could also ask students how their experience is and what their studies are like to see if their is heavy base design or if they focus on the engineering side of things.

    If you're in London, why not come to an open day at Ravensbourne.
    We have a Product Design course here if you are interested.

    Feel free to ask me anything about the course. I'm a 3rd year

    Hope this helps
    Kay
