Hey!

I’m not sure if I want to or not but I’m thinking of studying architecture in the future. I’m not sure if it’s what I want to do as I am a very arty/ creative person and I don’t know if my skills will fit in with a career like this.

However, I was wondering if anyone would know the best university for architecture courses that is art based as I wouldn’t enjoy physics and engineering courses as much.
From my research I have found UCL Bartlett as the most creative course but I won’t be able to get in as I want to do a combination of a levels and btecs and they don’t accept that as meeting their entry Requirements.

Any help would be appreciated

I believe it is yeah! They specialise in art subjects and compared to other universities nearby on the south coast it is the most art focused.

They also do a degree in interior architecture and design - more focused on arranging the spaces inside a pre-built building, rather than starting from scratch - so less of the engineering side of it too.

FYI - I dropped out of architecture in my first year - its a long process. 3 years BA(Hons), 2 years in practice - , and 2 years masters in order to call yourself an architect. For me, 7 years wasn't worth the small chance of being highly paid. If you don't complete the 7 years you cannot call yourself an architect, as it is a protected profession by law.

I studied at Uni of Portsmouth but looked at AUB (arts uni Bournemouth too - it is separate from the main Bournemouth university, but they are right next to each other. AUB is very small due to the small number of courses - it's more the size of a sixth form college.

Wow that’s so helpful thank you so much!
i am actually worried about that I am too not sure I’d be interested enough in the subject to spend 7 years doing it.

thank you for the help though I will definitely look into that uni

Hey Ekee,

I can see that you're very interested in taking the creative pathway. I was in kind of the same situation as you before starting my BA in Digital Advertising. As soon as I was about to finish my A-levels I knew I wanted to do a creative path but I wasn't sure which one. I then Found Ravensbourne and I chose to do the art and design(Art and media) foundation course I believe it was the best decision I could have made because I managed to get experience in different art courses and see for myself what course would be better for me.

Have you checked out Ravensbourne? We are an industry focused design and digital media university sector college. We have an excellent 95.3% employability rate and are taught by experienced staff and industry experts. We were recently named one of the top 100 European design schools by Italian architecture and design magazine Domus.

We offer different foundation courses that will guide you through the right creative path for when choosing your BA. We also have Architecture course that you might be interested in looking at.

When looking at unis, don't just look at the course your applying for, but look at what else the uni has to offer, for example, Ravensbourne students have access to the Central Loan Resource (CLR) where you can loan out equipment if you need it for your project, to produce a professional result using top of the line industry equipment. There are also prototyping rooms where you can develop your graphic design work in a more practical manner, by having access to things like laser cutters, 3D printers, sewing equipment and much more. The students also get the full Adobe software for free.

At Ravensbourne we have Open Days where you have a chance to talk to the Staff and Students, also getting a chance to look at portfolios produced by the students who have graduated. So why not come and join us at our next open days, we also provide free portfolio workshops.

Hope this was helpful,


Katy
