Design Tripos, University of Cambridge

Who else is thinking of applying to the new Design Tripos course at Cambridge? And if you are, is your portfolio purely architecture based or does it focus on engineering/ science? And I have very science-focused A Levels rather than art.

Did you end up applying to their design course in the end? If so at what college?

I applied for it and at Clare college. I have an interview coming up 🤞 However have zero idea on the number of applicants, so how competitive it is

Yeah I did... got to interview as well but again no idea on the chances of actually getting in since it's a new course and there's no existing statistics. What other courses/ unis have you applied to?
