    background info: Im in year 13 and i do art, geography and psychology but i still dont know what to do in University. So i think taking a gap year is best, however i still need to do my UCAS. I love painting portraits and i believe im really good at it. At first i came into year 12 knowing that i wanted to be an architect, how ive done more research and it sounds VERY technical and too much maths.i need help finding a course for now to write my personal statement by next week!in my gap year i want to get some international experience in Rwanda and further my skills in painting and also maybe start classes to teach other children how to paint. i feel this may be a good course as Art is not really appreciated in Rwanda, thus giving the opportunity to younger people there would be fantastic.

    Who told you that architecture involves a lot of maths? Most courses require nothing above gcse grade C content.

    If you’re considering an art related degree or career (including architecture) then I would recommend looking into art and design foundation diploma courses. These are pre university courses usually available in colleges but also at some universities.

    You would still have time available to travel and work abroad during your summer breaks.
