Fine collections of works of art, well-stocked libraries and the spectacular architectural environment on your doorstep mean that studying History of Art at Cambridge is particularly rewarding. Our course covers a wide spectrum of art and architecture, from the medieval to modern and contemporary periods. The aim is to foster a wide and deep understanding of art and architecture, and to help you develop visual literacy and awareness, as well as a range of critical and analytical skills.
Application deadline details:
Cambridge is everything the Oxbridge stereotype tells you - it's challenging, it's grand, it's academically focused, it's stunningly beautiful and it's intense. But it's also everything the stereotype doesn't tell you - it's still a normal student experience. The town has everything you could possibly want or need within a few minutes walk of most colleges (yes, even nightlife, provided you don't mind cheesy music); it has student clubs for every sport, art form and interest under the sun (including an Ice Cream Appreciation society); and it's filled with the most diverse, friendly and accepting group of people you'll ever meet.
Unbeatable. I love Cambridge and I love its University. No matter who you are, there’s something, somewhere or someone at this University for you. Everyone should apply here, at least to have the chance to experience what I’ve had the luck to live over the past two years. It can’t be described in words and there’s nothing quite like it...
