After seeing last years student room thread for history of art applicants, I thought it would be a good idea to create this year’s version!

So if you’re applying for history of art this year, then please feel free to ask questions and share which unis you’re applying to.

Good luck with your application!

StrawberryDreams - add this thread please!

Hi!

I’m applying to Cambridge but don’t really know where else. It’s so hard this year without in person open days to figure out where to go!

Studied English History Latin Class Civ and Public Speaking 😀 Applied to Pembroke Cambridge, Exeter (under Liberal Arts,) Courtauld, Kent and NCH with Creative writing. I was recommended a book called Writing About Art by Sylvan Barnet for a thematic/synoptic approach. Mary Acton’s Learning to Look series is on point as far as your work on formal analysis is concerned. Hamilton College also has a good checklist and examples to help you organize your work. Hope that helps!

i wouldn’t worry or overthink the written work too much! just make sure you show passion in your response and demonstrate good visual analysis. i get the impression that all the history of art tutors are really friendly and understanding, so don’t get too stressed over this! ☺️
