    I'm currently struggling between two unis, Dundee and GSA for Architecture. I'm not sure which one I'd prefer to go too as both are regarded as my top choice. I'm way more into the creative side of architecture rather than the technical side (ie maths/physics) any help would be grateful x

    Both would suit your preference for a more creative architecture course, but presumably GSA moreso as it is indeed an art school (which also has the benefit of bringing many creative disciples into the architecture course from other departments). Also GSA is a more prestigious name in the world of architecture, and while Dundee is a good school, GSA has an edge when it comes to UK-wide and international reputation.

    Have you visited both schools? I've not visited Dundee so can't comment, but I know that GSA has wonderful studios and is generally a really nice place to study, having visited a couple of times. It's important that you know you'll like working in the school's environment and will like living in the city.

    Personally I'd say go for GSA, but that's just my opinion. Make sure you compare every aspect of each to come to your own decision, good luck!

    Thanks a lot for all that helped quite a bit, I guess I'll just have too see. I'm hoping that the applicant days will help make my decision but who knows. Good luck with yourself as well!
