First of all congratulations in getting an interview at the AA.

You don't mention whether you studied Architecture before or whether this is your first foray into the subject?

Did you study Art?

You will need to prepare for the interview. No doubt they will want to see any design work you may have done whether it be architecture or fine art or graphics. You can bring stuff that you either did at school or even in your own time.

They will want to understand why you are choosing architecture and why you want to go to the AA. I suggest you research the units at the AA what work they have done, the history of the AA etc.

As for job opportunities after the AA? Depends on the recession .... But seriously the AA is known all over the world I would say you would have no problem getting a job after graduation as long as you are a good student!

A school is only a part of the equation, you yourself and what you make of the environment you are in and the opportunities it gives you will determine your success.

Thank you so much for your respond :)
I had bachelor in computer engineering and I don't have any degree in Art ,but as passion ,I have been always involved with it and I did some course at Emily Carr(university of art and design in Vancouver )
About the school ,I did alot of research about the work that AA have done ,but I didn't found anything useful except its history and previous students!

So ,I really appreciate if you know a link or extra info. about their works ,just send them to me .

Good information , Thanks again

Cheers,

Mahsa
