    I've been given two conditional offers from UCA and Dundee to do Architecure however UCA have lowered my entry requirements from ABB to CCC which I'm so happy about. But Dundee is asking for BBB. But I'm really unsure about which one to put as my firm as Dundee is a really good uni as they provide close completion of the architecture study of 7 years. But I can also mess up on exams and not get in.

    I would love to hear your thoughts about this

    You’re talking almost entirely about entry requirements.

    Which course do you prefer? Where do you get the best studio space? Which has the staff you think you can work well with? What about the town/city? Where can you see yourself living for 3-4 years?

    Hmm your correct about that but I have thought about the course as UCA has a very art based course which I prefer but then again Dundee will be able to teach the entire 5 years inculcing being specialised in an area I may want to pursue and they both have the same sized studio space. In terms of staff they both have very good tutors. And I'll be visiting Dundee soon to get a feel of the uni as I prefer being able to know more people than just from my course which UCA Canterbury doesn't offer as the student life is quite dead and there are no societies, due to 3 courses being taught at this campus. But a plus about UCA is that I'm 1 train away from home: London whereas Scotland would take me quite a while.
    But overall I'm not quite sure😢

    Dundee is the better course imo.

    I'm from London and am probably going to a Scottish school, I think the change and distance will be great

    im at UCA not a bad uni but definitley VERY dead socalising wise. your main friends WILL be from your course, as the uni is tiny, there isnt many people to choose from. im quite a old soul so i like the smallish vibe it has, but i do sometimes wish i went to a campus uni, its more of a expirence, UCA reminds me of a updated version of college.
