All applicants for Architecture are required to take written and practical assessments at interview, if interviewed. Please see the Admissions Assessments page on the University website for further details.
If invited for interview, candidates are asked to bring with them a portfolio of art work, either from their school studies or work produced independently. This can include a wide range of work, including artwork, photography, theatre set designs, technical studies, posters or school magazines. Each candidate will have two interviews at the College and will be expected to discuss the portfolio of work they have brought with them.
There are no formal entry requirements for Architecture. However, the course demands that students are able to draw with precision and to develop ideas in visual ways, so students are likely to have studied Art at school before applying to read Architecture. Similarly, the study of Mathematics or Physics provides crucial grounding for the technical aspects of design. However, the breadth of the course, and the fact that few students have studied Architecture prior to coming to Cambridge, mean that many different combinations of subject areas may be beneficial to prospective Architects. Above all, a natural curiosity about the world and a sense of spatial imagination are the qualities that we look for in the candidates for Architecture at Trinity Hall.
Please note that we do not take affiliated students for Architecture. Applicants with a first degree may apply for the full three-year course.
