    Do you think it's a good idea to take:
    Art
    Maths &
    Product design?
    I want to get into a design course(e.g. Architecture, interior design etc) in uni and require a some sort of portfolio showing any design, but don't require any specific subject.
    Should I take both art and product design, or should I scrap 1 and take a different subject?

    Any advice would help but I've made my mind up anyway, I just want some reassurance. Thanks

    You need to look at the entrance requirements for 5-10 unis you are interested in and see what they say.

    I would only go with one creative and pick something else that was a bit more academic. Is there anything else which you could get a high grade in? Alternatively just do an informal check with the uni that you would suffer no prejudice. They normally say what they require and prefer.

    Yes, I've checked many unis that are close to me and most require good grades and a portfolio of design, I'm wondering how much.

    If I don't need to show pages and pages of work, i could swap art with chemistry, since i do art and prod design know so i could use that work in my portfolio, and I quite enjoy chemistry.

    Only thing putting me off is how much portfolio i need to show, any advice is appreciated

    Contact the unis and find what the expectation is. My impression is that 2 creatives is the wrong balance and you should do 2 academic and 1 creative. I would take design.

    If you google architect portfolio then am sure google will show you the way.
