are these good a levels for architectureWatch this thread
I'm thinking of doing art psycology and biology but are these good a levels to study architecture?I'm also debating on whether I should take philosoph
Yes they're fine as UCAS confirms: https://www.ucas.com/explore/subject...g-and-planning
Science, Maths, Humanities and Arts A Levels are preferred but not required.
I’m a second year architecture at the university of Kent and it’s great that you want to study this course.
If you are not sure of which A Levels are right for the course, I’d recommend checking the requirements of the university you are apply for, to be safe. You’ll see this changes from place to place but studying Art will help for your portfolio submission at any university. Most universities might prefer Science, Mathematics, English or Physics: ultimately, each institution decides what their general entry requirements are.
I’m sure that with enough information, you will be able to make the decision you reckon is best for you. I’ll attach the link to the University of Kent Architecture page for you to have ab idea: https://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/under...y-requirements
Also, this is what UCAS has to say about applying for an architecture degree: https://www.ucas.com/explore/subject...g-and-planning
I hope this helps! If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to ask
but i think the most common / obvious combination would probably be maths, physics and art, especially as architecture involves a lot of maths / physics, also you can check some uni requirements if you're not sure
It really depends on the university; the top tier universities will expect Maths or Physics with Art or an essay-based subject. But some other universities will just expect Art and the ability to cope with a demanding workload.
Cambridge, UCL and Manchester will expect either Maths or Physics and Art. Otherwise, you can choose anything.
The vast majority of architecture courses do not specify math and/or physics as a requirement.
For K100 architecture, Strathclyde and some Cambridge colleges are the only universities that require maths or physics. Bath prefers maths and/or physics. Manchester "A mixture of science or maths and humanities or arts subjects is preferred, but not essential". UCL does not specify any subjects.
To the OP, do your own research for the unis that you are interested in to make sure what is required of you.
I have a friend who’s going to study architecture and he’s doing maths further maths biology art. So I’d really recommend switching psychology for atleast maths and if you ever decide to change career paths you’ll be extremely grateful you picked maths as I’ve never once regretted taking it
than a C or D in maths or physics.
The misinformation and myth that architecture degrees are a branch of engineering with similar subject requirements is nonsense. It’s a creative design based degree and career.
