Below you will find information about the specific degree course offered by Cambridge University to study Education, how to prepare, and how Oxbridge Interviews can help you with your application.BOOK COURSE
Cambridge University’s Education degree course is three years long.
The application process is highly competitive with only 25% of applications successful. To be offered a place, you generally need to get A*AA at A Level or equivalent. No specific A Level subjects are required.
Oxford University do not offer an undergraduate degree in Education.
To prepare for your Education application, you must demonstrate your motivation for the subject and specific interests. You can do this by reading beyond your school curriculum. Our interviewers recommend:
- 'Foundations for Independence: Developing Independent Learning in the Foundation Stage (Early Years Library)' by Sally Featherstone & Ros Bayley
- 'Self-Regulation in Early Childhood: Nature and Nurture ' by Martha B. Bronson
Practice interviews for Education applications are critical. You wouldn’t sit an exam without doing a mock, so don’t place yourself in an interview without having experienced a practice interview first.
There are no written pre-written admissions tests for Education at Cambridge.
