If you want to be an architect then at gcse level you would develop a good broad background in the required skills if you include most of these
Maths and English
A creative subject eg Art or Photography or design
Science particularly physics
History
Geography
Economics or business wouldn’t hurt

You would have to ask your school that.

Hi Megs_261
It's great that you are thinking about this already. I would suggest doing a broad range of courses and ones that you enjoy doing. With a lot of the BA Architecture courses they will want to see a portfolio of work during your interview so I would suggest aiming for something that will help you build a portfolio. Underneath commerce I am not sure what subjects those are it would be good to talk to your school about that. Apart from your GCSE and A-Levels interviewers will also be on the lookout for your knowledge within the industry so think about designers and go to galleries or just look at buildings.

As for University courses Ravensbourne offers a BA Architecture course as well as a BA Interior Design Environment Architectures, and BA Urban Landscape Architecture. They all work closely together and look into the technical side as well as how it should be designed to improve the space we live in. If you want to know more about the courses and the industry opportunity within them I would recommend coming to an open day. During the open day you will also be able to go to a portfolio workshop to meet someone and talk about what should be in your portfolio.

We also offer summer school for Architecture if you are in the London area and want to see how the course will be like as well as a chance to experience the building.

I hope this has helped and if you have more questions please feel free to ask.
