Architecture is a small department, and thus the number of students in any one college studying architecture is never large, but Emmanuel has always attracted an above-average share of applicants.

It is conveniently sited for the Architecture Department, and its Library contains a useful selection of reference works. As with many other subjects of comparable size, both the admission process and undergraduate teaching are organised primarily on a departmental rather than a college basis, and interested candidates are therefore particularly advised to consult the University's Admissions Prospectus and course details on the Department's website.

Candidates should normally expect two interviews. The interviews will take place during the period Monday 7 - Wednesday 16 December 2020. Specific subject dates will be emailed to applicants in November.

Applicants will be asked to submit a PDF (6 A4 pages and less than 15MB in size) of their own work prior to interview. The selection of images should, in part, reflect material you might bring to interview (in a normal year) as part of your portfolio. For the portfolio, make sure you have variety, show spatial awareness, i.e., 3D perspectives, and be prepared to talk about your inspirations and ideas. The Admissions Office will send further details when they acknowledge your application.

Candidates may also be sent a reading passage in advance of their interview with the Admissions Tutor.

Admissions Assessment: All applicants will take a written assessment (writing skills and graphic and spatial ability) at interview. An assessment specification is available online.
