‘How much did your architectural education cost? No idea? Well, consider yourself lucky.’
I read this article on Building Design Online and got really curious, I decided to calculate exactly how much my architectural education has cost, well, so far. (God helps me, 7 years and it’s not ever done yet???)
3 years of Undergrad, £8 700 each = £26 100
Plus living expenses, say £10 000 a year = £30 000
2 years of Postgrad, £12 000 each but thanks to International Scholarship I had to pay ONLY a mere £12 000 for both years!!!!
Again, living expenses = £20 000
Don’t forget the loveliest £1 500 or so I had to depart with for my Part I exam. Hmm.
This amounts to a staggering £89 600 altogether. Let’s call it £90 000!
Seriously WHY DID I BOTHER?????????? I’d have been much better off with £90 000 in my bank account! ;D
