Tips for Applying for a ‘Weird’ Cambridge Subject

Cambridge has such a wide range of courses which you can choose to apply for, amongst which are some pretty confusing titles. What is Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic? Is Education just a teaching training course? Although I can’t speak on behalf of everyone studying one of the smaller, more niche courses which Cambridge has to offer, I do remember feeling pretty puzzled by the prospect of applying for a course which doesn’t map nicely onto the pre-university curriculum.

But What is an Education Degree?

Whenever I tell people that I’m studying Education at Cambridge I’m met with the ever-infuriating response ‘so you’re training to be a teacher then?’ No, I say with a sigh – in fact a lot of people on this course find themselves giving a similar response on almost daily basis.

Studying History at Cambridge

Although History is offered at the vast majority of UK universities, the course content and structure differ greatly. Studying History at Cambridge involves an exceptional degree of freedom to explore students’ personal interests within history; regular opportunities to talk to leading academics about these chosen topics; and a variety of different teaching and examination methods. I’ve listed a few factors which make the Cambridge course unique, and why I enjoy studying it!
