Outreach and Widening Participation

Admissions image 11

We offer a number of events for prospective students interested in studying architecture during the year.

ARCHITECTURE TASTER DAYS 2017

The Department of Architecture will be hosting an Architecture Taster Day in collaboration with Peterhouse College on Friday 3 March 2017. The day will include a taster architecture lecture, a course talk with tips on applying, lunch in a Cambridge college, a hands-on design session with Cambridge tutors and a visit to our studio.

The day is open to all Year 12 students currently attending UK maintained schools. Students should normally be taking Art (or other design-based subject) A Level OR have grade A or A* in Art GCSE to attend (though we will take into account any extenuating circumstances). The day is free of charge, and assistance finding overnight accommodation for those travelling long distances will be provided.

The deadline for applications is FRIDAY 16 DECEMBER 2016. After the deadline places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis, but priority will be given to students who meet Widening Participation Criteria.

Applications are open NOW via this link.

If you are a prospective student (or parent or guardian) with questions about the Architecture course, or studying at Cambridge, please email outreach@aha.cam.ac.uk, or call 01223 760110 (before 12pm).

If you are a teacher looking for possible collaborations with the Architecture department, to organise a school visit, or wanting to find out about the Architecture course at Cambridge please email outreach@aha.cam.ac.uk, or call 01223 760110 (before 12pm).

VISITING THE DEPARTMENT

The best time to come and find out more about our course is at our Department Open Day, which takes place at the same time as the University of Cambridge Open Day in early July. You can find out more information here.

In addition, we run a series of informal visits and tours of the department over the course of the year (dates listed in the right hand menu). These are informal tours of our facilities by our Outreach Coordinator, and do not include the opportunity to meet current staff or students. To book onto one of these, please email: reception@aha.cam.ac.uk

These are informal tours of the Faculty. Please note that these are not open days, and there will not be an opportunity to meet members of staff. This is a busy working department so it is not guaranteed that all facilities will be available to visit on every tour.

Prospective students are encouraged to take advantage of the activities offered by the department in the July University Open Day to gain the best understanding of the course.
