Education is one of the most powerful means for change and growth in the modern world. If you are interested in the psychology, politics or social and cultural contexts of education and learning, you can study it on our Education course.

The course at Cambridge is a rigorous and rewarding interdisciplinary degree. You follow one track, out of the two that Emmanuel offers, combining in-depth study of a particular field of interest with an examination of wider educational and social issues:

Applicants will indicate on the Supplementary Application Questionnaire (SAQ) which track they are interested in studying.

In the first year, students will attend four to six lectures and seminars, and one or two hours of supervision per week. Students are assessed at the end of each year and depending on the papers studied, this will be through coursework, written examination, or a combination of both. In the third year, all students will also submit a dissertation.
