About 25 undergraduates are expected to enter the Department for the Part I each year.
To become a member of the University a prospective undergraduate must first be admitted by a College.
- Colleges house students, supply teaching in supervisions, enter students for University examinations, and present students for their degrees.
- All Colleges, except St. Catharine's, Girton and Robinson, admit students for the History of Art Tripos, and students are advised to contact a range of Colleges for information, and especially to attend a College Open Day.
- The Department of History of Art normally prefers candidates taking the Art and Design A Level to offer three additional academic subjects at A Level. It is not necessary for one of these to be History of Art.
