Cambridge is the 2nd oldest university in English-speaking countries and the fourth oldest in the entire world.

Education

The undergraduate architecture program requires no prior knowledge of architecture. The Design Studios are at the heart of the program; here, you’ll work on specific design projects to hone your architectural talents through drawing, research, rendering, and model-making, all while utilizing a variety of techniques and technologies. A comprehensive spectrum of courses in History and Theory, Construction, Buildings, and Environmental Studies supplement studio practice.

Each year’s work is evaluated using a combination of written tests, submitted essays, and Design Studio portfolio of coursework. Students investigate and submit a thesis on an architectural subject of their choice in their third year.
