    A potential next-door neighbour here (my daughter)
    Cool! I happened to enter the gates of Christ's thinking that it was my college... Quite similar architecture though!


    Anyone knows how the placement at Edinburgh works? Is it for the whole year 4th? There are a few modules for Semester 1 that seem to be taught on campus, so perhaps the placement is from that point for the rest of the year?

    Thanks!

    Mind you, I've got a sneaking suspicion that she'll be pooled and end up at Churchill!

    Well at least it did feature in the guardian's top five best new buildings of 2016 with it's new accommodation,Cowan Court .

    Wishing I'd picked a different college as St John's appear to have had a huge surge in applicants this year so the odds don't look good Sadly as it was stunning .

    Seriously, don't fret - if the pool system works for any subject, it's architecture! How many applicants do you think they had? Look at Kings in years past.

    True. Why do they get so many ? I'm guessing there must have been about 35 applicants for St John's this year as there seemed to be at least 30 being interviewed during the 2 dates , whereas in past few years there seem to have been about 17-20 applicants. I wonder why it was popular choice this year ? I wonder how many get pooled succesfully ?

    Honestly it'll make no difference because of pooling. We wont be disadvantaged in terms of getting in. Plus look at the pros, our interviewees were so nice and the whole thing was really relaxed for us (in my opinion). I mean, home alone was playing right before my interview and nothing calmed my nerves better than getting in the christmas spirit!!!!

    I think 20-25% (10-15) of offers go to winter pool.
    0-3 also in summer pool.
    Kings - I've asked this and the only answer that seems to come back is "because people have heard of it" ;-)

    thanks guys!!

    Edinburgh's not my University, and the system is slightly different in Scotland* to England, but are you referring to the "year out" by "placement"? If so, it is not a placement, but a job.

    http://www.ed.ac.uk/student-recruitm...cture/studying

    Typically the "year out" is for a whole year after graduating* although it can be extended up to three years (currently) and return to a Part II course on the same fee arrangement. Usually a graduate will be expected to have had a minimum of three months' Part I Architectural Assistant experience in an architect's practice (or experience in the office of a relevant discipline with a suitably qualified and recognized office mentor/ supervisor) but this is up to the discretion of each individual institution to determine. For more information, I'd recommend you look at the "Becoming an Architect" pages on the RIBA website (www.architecture.com) for PEDR.

    Hello everyone,

    Have been following this tread but didn't even have time to set up an account! Applied to Cambridge, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Bath and GSA.

    Has anyone here applied to Sidney Sussex at Cambridge?

    Good luck to us all xx

    Yeah, Kings has way more applicants across the board, so there (and probably John's) this year will likely pool a large number.

    That guy Felipe Hernández seems to interview at Kings and Christs among others. I guess he's almost a one-man poolmaker and must do over 100 interviews each year!

    Thanks a lot for taking time to answer. Though it's something different with Edi, like it's a placement combined into the 4th year, but to me it doesn't look like it's for the whole year. So many Edinburgh applicants here, I'm sure someone knows?

    Hiya I think for the MA abroad pathway, it means that you will spend a year abroad for work placement and then a year back in Edinburgh for Part II of RIBA/ MA studies. Whereas the MA placement pathway, you'll be doing 9 months of work placement and then a year of master's. This is what their programme suggests : http://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/undergr...018/utarch.htm
    Hope this helps

    Aw thanks, that explains so much! I've been searching for ages and somehow didn't find this useful page at their website. Do you know by any chance if the abroad pathway is work or just studying at a different uni? Also I think they say it's 2 years of master's even after the placement pathway, which to me makes sense...

    Anyway, very useful to know!

    BTW, I've just got an offer from Bath <3

    Ahhhh yes you're right! It's MA(4yrs) + MArch (2yrs), and within the MA you have 9 months/1 year of placement depending on what pathway you choose I think for the abroad year it'll be work placement rather than studying in a university, but I'd suggest you to email the uni to confirm as I'm not 100% sure :/

    And congrats!!!!!!!!! Bath is da bomb 👌🏼👌🏼
