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 9 - Wednesday 18 December 2019. Specific subject dates will be emailed to applicants in November.

Applicants are required to bring to the interview a portfolio of their most recent work. They do not need to bring architectural drawings: instead interviewers want to see portfolios that demonstrate their interests, experience and ability in the visual and material arts: a sketchbook with their own hand drawings is particularly useful. Normally drawing and painting forms the basis of the portfolio, but other media such as sculpture and photography may also be included. Applicants can bring work prepared at school for examinations, but creative work that they have done outside of their courses is also welcome.

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.
