Prospective Students


I have really enjoyed my first year here at Trinity Hall! Cambridge feels like a really exciting place to be studying Architecture, with tutors and students all full of creative ideas. As you spend a lot of your time in the studio of the department it means you get to know the other architects really well, as well as other students in your college. I have met some really great people in both!" – Bronya

Students from all colleges are taught together in the Architecture Department, and all students have individual desk space in the recently built design studio building at the faculty. In a typical week during Full Term, the undergraduates will have two days devoted solely to working on their studio design projects, including desk-based supervisions with their design tutors and any ‘crits’ or design reviews with faculty staff and external critics. A full programme of lectures and seminars are scheduled for the remaining three week days.

The design teaching is very much at the heart of the course. Students are expected to take full responsibility for their own design project development, and gain technical skills and knowledge via the various courses offered by the faculty in order to inform and enrich their own design work.

In the final year of the undergraduate course, students undertake a dissertation of 7000-9000 words in length (including illustrations). The topic for this sustained research is agreed between the student and Director of Studies before embarking on the final year of the course.
