Can I switch from a BA to a BScWatch
I got accepted for a BA in Architecture a month ago, but I think I rather should have applied for the BSc.... Also, my uni offers both. Is it too late? Don't want to go through the entire application process again, and I already firmed my offer
PS. I'm moving this to Applications, Clearing and UCAS
The important and common thread with these, is the latter courses - i.e. anything not called "Architecture" - are not necessarily ARB accredited, RIBA Part 1 exempting degrees. That is, they are not training programmes to become an architect. Some of them are in fact specifically designed to train other professions within the built environment sector - and architectural technologist is not an architect, for example. Some of them might be (Architecture & Planning/Environmental Design, for example, may well be) but quite a few are, as noted, simply totally different areas.
As above ultimately it's up to the university whether they will permit the switch. Assuming you're pursuing architecture with the intent to become a practicing architect, you need to be looking at courses which are ARB accredited and RIBA Part 1 exempting, so you need to confirm if either (or both) courses you're considering fall into that category, and that should hopefully make up your mind. As far as I can tell there are two universities where it might be the case that both courses are ARB/RIBA Part 1, in which case obviously if you feel one is better suited to you then by all means go ahead with that. But do look into whether this alternate course you're looking at is actually going to get you to the goal you're aiming for.
Incidentally nobody actually cares whether your degree title has a BSc or BA - employers (or postgrad course providers) care about your degree classification, the relevance of the degree programme to whatever you're going on to do with it, and what you've actually done in the course of the degree (none of which are predicted or revealed by that title). So if that's a concern, you don't need to worry about it
