Hi. My name is Andrei, I am currently starting my final high school year and I am planning to apply to a university in Scotland in order to study architecture in January 2021 for the 2021-start. I don't really understand how the application process works for the University of Edinburgh. Is it simply based on the essay and my high school grades or do I need to present a portofolio of my work like in other universities? It would be really helpful to get a reply from anyone who knows really, be it a student, counselor or whoever might know. I am also applying for GSA, University of Strathclyde, Robert Gordon University and University of Dundee. IG: @martzyandrei

Edinburgh application process for 2020 was simply based on your personal statement and your predicted or actual A' level grades. No portfolio was requested and a conditional offer was made.

Do you know if a portfolio is required for 2021 entry?

Hi looking to study architecture 2021 entry in Scotland (higher grades 4 x A - graph comm/maths/english/biology 1 x B chemistry). A bit worried I dont have an an art portfolio - Strathclyde said thats OK Robert Gordon said must have Art. Waiting to find out from Edinburgh. Glasgow school of art don't know if my graph comm work will suffice and 5th choice may be Architectural engineering at herriot watt. Ive managed to secure work experience at an architects practice in October hols - any suggest or advice much appreciated. Thanks

Hi, I'm a student from the south coast and have applied to Cambridge, UCL, Bath, Sheffield, and am still deciding on my fifth choice (considering Edinburgh or Greenwich). I might also look at the AA but it is so expensive!!I'm currently doing Art, Maths, Physics, Music A-level and also taking an AS in further maths, predicted A*A*A*A* A. Architecture is both a career that will make me feel fulfilled about my job and also its an opportunity for me to combine the breadth of lots of different subjects (arts, culture/theory, engineering

Hey! we're so similar, I'm applying to bath, ucl, cambridge and sheffield too, but also cardiff, and expected A*AA. I'm also super bummed I can't show my portfolio, some unis have asked for me to send over 6-8 pages pdf? it's not really enouph space to show off my work, and I'm sure, as your uni choices are similar so you're probably experiencing the same thing, how have/are you going to cram all your work in?

Haha literally its so stress, already on version 1.7 for my cambridge mini portfolio thing lol. I think like you've just got to be so harsh and literally just pick the best of the best, I keep cutting pieces out to like streamline it more. Hopefully it'll be enough to get an interview and I'll be able to show a lot more then but honestly its so hard to say who knows what they are actually looking for. Bath is such a blessing to apply to cause its just a personal statement and nothing else aha

This is such a great thread. I don't know much about architecture, however I admire those who study the subject, and will make such a great contribution towards the buildings we see in the future.

I'm predicted A*A*A and planning on applying to:

Lancaster, Loughborough, Bath, Nottingham

but haven't made up my mind yet on the last
one. I don't want to go to a big city university after everything that's happened this year and prefer quieter campus courses..
