i've always wanted to do architecture but researching into it many architects say their not happy with their job and everyone says u need lots of dedication because u get little pay for the amount of work u do. What r other careers are similar to architecture, i want to make 100k + a year and don't wait a decade for it to happen. i'm more on the creative side than the STEM side. I also want to have my own business, would I make more money with my own firm? Other things i love and consider as jobs are interior design, event organising, party planning etc. I have the grades for architecture but i don't mind doing an 'easy' degree even though it won't please my parents that much. Sorry for the long question

You will not make £100k a year if you're not dedicated. Nothing is easy... you're in cloud cuckoo land if you think someone is going to give you a £100k job within 10 years, that is rare.

You'll need a lot of hard work and dedication and will need to keep pushing yourself outside your comfort zone.

It takes a minimum of 7 years to qualify as an architect. Decades more to build up a career.

I think you would benefit from working for a couple of years before university so that you have a better understanding of what different jobs might involve before you commit to a specific pathway.

It is exceptionally rare for people in architecture/similar fields to be making 100k+ within the first 10 years. Like, really rare. If one of your relatives do architecture/similar job and makes that much they are either:
1) Experienced in the field for more than a decade
2) Were one of the few very lucky people who got 100k+ within a decade.

Yes that's true leading up to RIBA! I worked as an architectural technician in my 20s

I would be happy to earn 40K living a good life than earning 100k with no life !!!

I agree with other postings that you will not get 100k if you are not dedicate to it. You need to fell in love with architecture before you can work your way through earning 100k!!

This is not a good mindset to have. That will be very difficult, and in the very few careers that it could you need to be the best of the best. Focus on your school studies and apply for something at uni that genuinely interests you.
