On UCAS I had the University of Manchester as my first choice for 'BSc Architecture' but unfortunately I didn't get my entry. My second choice is Loughborough University for the course 'BSc Architectural Engineering and Design Management'. I'd love to do this course yet my parents are reluctant to let me because they think that with it, I wont be able to achieve my future goal of becoming an Architect. I'm from Holland so my parents are trying to make me go there and study 'BSc Architecture' at TU Delft but more than anything I don't want to go there.
I would be doing a masters degree in Architecture following the undergraduate course. I was wondering if anyone could give me advise on this... if I take 'BSc Architectural Engineering and Design Management' and follow it with a masters in Architecture, can I still achieve my goal of being an architect?
Furthermore, I have been telling my parents that if I did the 'Architectural Engineering and Design Management' course, I would be a lot more well-rounded as its more practical and hands on and perhaps more for those interested in starting their own firm. Does anyone know anything else about the course which would be beneficial to me when later pursuing a career as an architect?
I'd love to go to Loughborough and I'm trying to come up with points arguing to my parents that studying in the UK is better than studying in Holland. I'd appreciate people's opinions on this topic. Thanks so much in advance
