A Level: A*AA IB: 40-41 points, with 776 at Higher Level

The Architecture Tripos gives an unrivalled design-based general degree to some of our graduates, but for most it is the first step to the profession. It cumulatively provides exemption from part 1 of the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Examination, and it must therefore be taken as a whole.

Subject Requirements

Essential All applicants are expected to show a portfolio of recent work at interview.

Desirable: AS Level / IB Standard Level Mathematics or Physics.

Most of our architecture applicants will have taken A levels, or the equivalent in other examination systems, in Art and will include work they have produced in A Level Art as the basis of their portfolio.
