Hello I am a first year student studying this course.
For the application they use send in a portfolio digitallty sometime in January??? youre gonna have to search that up, but once you send in the portfolio by uploading it to the UCL portal they will get back to you and call you in for an interview.
In the interview they ask general questions about your portfolio,models or sketches etc and about your life.

We just started our 2nd week of lectures this week but so far i enjoy it because it has a good balance between physics and maths in structural and environmental based modules and history/theory of architecture as well as design.

If you have any more questions just reply under this.

Hi, Im considering applying for this course. how much of it is engineering based compared to architecture?
From what ive seen so far, it seems about 65% to engineering, but it's because we haven't started our design modules yet so the only architecture related modules are the drawing masterclasses and history and theory lessons. From Term 2 of 1st year to the end of the degree program we will be doing architectural design projects so there will more design to come.

Would definently recommend this course to anyone who isn't sure wherther to do civill engineering or architecture or environmental engineering as this an integration of all 3. Once you graduate hopefully you will have the accreditation to go into any of fields(architecture require further education) you will be definifintly advantaged to other applicants due to your wholistoc view on buildings, the structural design and foundations, architectural design and its sustainability.

Hope to see you next year, Dryve.

Okay, thank you so much for your help?😄 I have another question which is non specific to the course. How is student life at ucl? Since it is london and also not a campus uni, I'm rlly worried about my experience. As there is one building i go to, when will I get the chance to make friends not in my course.And one last thing 😅 if someone i were predicted A*AB instead of the required AAA, can i still get in? Or would i be better off applying to the Architecture course on Its own which requires AAB, however I assume it will have more people applying to it.

Student life at UCL is really diverse, you can make it want you want it to be essentially, of your a party paerson you can party, if you like to chill or play games you can do that too etc. One think i like is the societies, I met lots of people from other societies and became friends with them. In terms of being in one building, it depends on what course you do. If you do Architecture by iits self then youll be restricited to only being in the Barlett pretty much, for quite a lot of hours as well. But students who do the MEng Engineering and Architectural design course are never in the same place in campus twice a week, we work in multiple places and also have another campus in East London, called Here East exclusive to a small amount of students( our course being the only undergraduate course), we even share the Maths module with other engineering disciplines for years 1 & 2,which is nice so i can revise maths with my other engineering friends. In terms of grades the best thing you can do try and convince your school increase the grade from B to A and explain the situation of trying to get into UCL. If it fdoesnt go your way you can always apply from another course like Architecture to the MEng if you really want to do it.

Yeah there was last year. From what I know Architecture students were given a drawing task that they had to send in specifically, meanwhile the MEng just sent in different pieces of work from whatever time.

I think you will, as i uploaded my portfolio a week before and had an interview, but the earlier you submit, the earlier your interview is

I would say just about more than half of applicants have done an a level in art, architecture or some sort of product design meanwhile about 40% have done more academic a levels like maths,chemistry, physics =, english etcetera. The thing we all have is common is our interest in Architecture and buildings so it wouldnt matter so much other than a slight headstart. But if one does a portfolio outside their work in Sixth form it communicates an external passion for the course which is seen as pro rather than a con.

Hi I’m applying aswell, and wondering whether your portfolio should be completely architecture/enigneering based or whether it can be any type of work?

I didn’t do A level art either, don’t worry as I think they recognise the fact that you are passionate for this course outside of your A levels.

someone asked me how was the application process, Here is my response.

The process was quite long, firstly I applied through ucas with my personal statement and predicted grades. I think they liked my personal statement hence they sent me a portfolio brief whereby I digitally uploaded 10 pieces of work all of different things, some not related to Architecture or engineering. I made sure to display different skill such as model making(wasn’t amazing but I tried), drawing plans, elevations, illustrating ideas visually, and some CAD stuff. I also showed some graphic design of like logos and posters that I thought were good. They then must’ve like my portfolio and application as a whole hence they called me in for an Interview. The gap between the interview and portfolio submission was over 2 months so I thought I didn’t get in 😂. But then I had my interview in April where I brought some work and my physical interview which I talked through. You don’t necessarily show Architectural or Engineering standard work just different skills you can offer and show your passion for the course. Try talk about how you passionate for interdisciplinary design. Then about 2 weeks after they gave the offer whereby I firmed it.
