    I’m wanting to be an architect when I’m older and just wondering what the degree is like? Also what a levels do I need? My strongest subjects are maths physics and art. Though I’m quite interested in psychology too.

    Maths physics and art at A level would give you complete flexibility of universities for architecture (if you didn’t like maths/physics then you would have a handful of universities that wouldn’t suit you).

    Have you got any universities near you that offer architecture? If so then going along to their open days will be a good idea (even if you want to move away for university you can get some idea of the sort of thing you would study and the resources you might have from any university).

    The best way to find out is to visit a university. You need to speak to staff and students and see studios and a final year show to get a good insight.

    It’s a demanding degree that has a very high workload (scheduled time and studio time). It’s also a long training process which is why it’s a good idea to do a lot of research.

    It might be worth having a look at the various threads in the Architecture and the Built Environment area if TSR. The applicant threads are one of the friendliest subject applicant threads on the site.
