Clare College Cambridge

Architecture

Number of students per year: 3-4

 

Typical offer: A*AA at A-level or 7,7,6 (42+ overall) in the IB or the equivalent in other educational systems. For Scottish Highers and Advanced Highers - Offers usually require AAA at Advanced Higher Grade; bands may be specified.

 

Essential subjects: GCSE or equivalent Mathematics is required, and A-level Mathematics or Physics is useful but not required. There is no formal requirement for candidates for the Architecture Tripos to have passed an A-level in Art, but our experience at Clare over many years leads us to the view that it is desirable; Design and Design & Technology A-levels are generally poor substitutes.

 

Written assessment: All applicants for Architecture are required to take written and practical assessments at interview. Candidates are also required to submit a portfolio of work in support of their application for admission.

 

Study Architecture

Teaching for the Architecture Tripos is mainly conducted in the Department of Architecture. Even so, the College provides an overall framework for its architectural students and a strong supporting environment for their studies. The College has a vigorous policy of supporting the Arts, Architecture and Design and this policy is reflected in the continuing number of applications made for admission to Clare to read Architecture and the generally high standard subsequently achieved by those admitted.
