Biochemistry vs architecture degreeWatch
I’m about to start uni and I’ve applied for biochemistry however I’m thinking about changing to architecture? What should I do?
Take a year out to think about what you really do want to do, and to build a portfolio for Architecture.
For a bit of context, I study bio and chem and I enjoy them subjects. I also enjoy art and making things. what I’m thinking is that biochemistry is a STEM degree so it’s the safer option in terms of careers compared to arch
Why don't you just wait until you get your results and have secured your Biochem place - and then defer for a year.
This gives you valuable breathing space and allows you to think/research other options. Making a panicky decision now is unlikely to be a wise one and you could easily regret that decision. Nowhere does it say that you can only go to Uni straight from school.
