Am actually thinking about it but not too sure, I visited an architecture office for my work experience and got to see some of the apartments and houses they've done (problem is they went a bit into architectural design...) and loved it but I'm not sure the work itself is something that could keep me interested...

If you're doing architecture could you tell me a bit more about the course itself and all the subjects in it... I think I've got too general an idea to really make a decision

Hey I’ve already been mention in this post but yeah I'm going to study Architecture @ Lincoln. Really looking forward to it. I just want to get their now and forget about A-levels!!!!

ReJ: If you don't mind I have a question for you, the fact you are already studying. I am looking at whether to buy a desktop or a laptop. Is a laptop worth it, do you use it in the studio's etc. Cheers for any help!

I'm studying Architecture at the University of Portsmouth.

It's a hell of a lot of work - not really hard work, but there's just a lot of work to get done..

i'm hoping i won't get bored, but after getting the first degree in architecture you can go into plenty of other things other than continue and become a chartered architect. My backup career is likely to be something in design, or maybe teaching

who knows? I think its a choice between getting bored in the middle of your architecture course, or doing a shorter degree and getting bored after a few years of work. ultimately i think it depends on your personality and if you've got a clear vision. its pretty easy to do a short degree with not much work and at the end of it start a job which holds your attention for only a few years.

i think its probably the most interesting of all.

in maths or science, your given a problem, a question for example. Often the answer is a fixed answer, 2+2 = 4 , it cant be changed (in most cases). But with architecture its differnt. you solve the problem, your way, you get the chance to create the answer, you can put a bit of you in the answer, often the answer can always be improved. Architecture, allows you to be creative, and think unlike any of the other subjects. If you think your going to get bored you will, for me architecture will never be boring.

not only are you in a position to affect one persons life, but you often affect everyones life every day. your decisions, your designs, make the difference. And the immense satisfaction of seeing something in your mind, that no one else can see, becoming real, becoming built, and standing for centuries to come is just amazing.

Architecture, allows you to be creative, and think unlike any of the other subjects.
In fairness - I think aside from pure science subjects, most arts degrees allow you to demonstrate your creativity - there is no one right answer for a whole host of subjects throughout the range of social sciences.
