How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Architecture course?

Creative

Your drawings were always the highlight of any art class. You were good at either singing, or writing, or sketching, or all of the above. You’ve always been a creative person at heart, but with school being very scientifically oriented, that side of you never flourished.

Good with your hands

While you may not understand a certain recipe, you’re amazing at cooking the exact same dish. Perhaps you’re not amazing at reading musical notes, but you’re a brilliant pianist. Theoretically, you aren’t the best. With your hands, though, and even the best is envious.

Confident

While your friends shy away from asking this one girl out on a date, you confidently walk up to her and do just that. Does she say yes? No one really knows. But you have the confidence to do it. You know that in life, confidence is key, in every aspect, and the more confident you are with people around you, the more positive they’ll be with you in return.

Hard worker

You were the kind of student who, when he/she got home from school, the first thing you did was your homework. You always studied weeks before exams. You constantly kept yourself busy and enjoyed feeling productive. To you, there was never a substitute for hard work. You’re a firm believer that hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work.
