    I'm in Year 11 at the moment and I'm choosing my A-Levels. I want to take Landscape Architecture for my course at uni hopefully.

    The first two A-Levels I want to take are Geography and Psychology.

    I am currently doing GCSE geography not history so please keep that in mind.

    I recently got a 6(B) in my English Lit and Lang exams for end of year exams of Year10 aswell.

    Which is more beneficial?
    And what are your views on each.

    Hey Oneiropólos,


    I suggest considering taking a creative subject, in addition to your two selected A level's, like art, graphics etc. as a lot of architecture courses focus mainly on your portfolio. The requirements for Ravensbourne are 2 A levels grade C and above in any subject. I suggest picking A-Levels that will help you build on your skills and courses that you enjoy doing. Taking a creative subject would help with build your portfolio.

    Your portfolio should show your passion as well as your experimental and technical skills. You should show your whole design process from research to concept development to the final piece. At Ravensbournewe offer portfolio workshopsyou can attend for free. You will get feedback and interview tips. You should also check out ourBA Urban Landscape Architecture course. Our students go on various trips, are taught by industry professionals and work with industry on live briefs as well as collaborative work.

    We are located in Greenwich Peninsula, London and are a design and media based institution. Our open space plan offers students the chance to work in a collaborative environment. You will be able to work with other students on different courses to help you develop your skills and projects. If you are in the area I would suggest coming to an open day to meet the tutors and get a better understanding of the course.

    I hope you have a great two years at Sixth Form.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask,

    Danny & Row
