Thanks to a parent’s generosity in sharing the fruits of her research, I can provide some info on architecture in the UK –
UCL – Bartlett. Highest scores – not necessarily – lateral thinkers. Reduced grades to 36 – no specific subject requirements (generic – less prescriptive). 36.
Then preselected for a test-project – 15 days to do. Then interview.
Bath – want high Maths – strong Engineering emphasis.
Westminster Uni – v good facilities. Nice area. Good presentation on open day BUT students unimpressive – lying around, clueless, mix of v happy and v unhappy people. Seemed inconsistent.
London Metropolitan – à suivre
Oxford Brookes – making progress in terms of reputation.
Edinburgh – v positive environment. Lots of care. High grades required.
