Active research is at the heart of the Faculty and this forms the foundation of our Undergraduate teaching. Students are taught by academics who are at the forefront of their fields and who specialise in cutting-edge educational research.

studentsStudent Life

Cambridge is great for student life; being part of the University gives you the opportunity to get involved in a huge number of activities at any level. For example, students can get involved in societies (e.g. drama, music, religion/faith,), sport (for fun, fitness or serious competition), politics (including the Union Society), media (e.g. the student newspapers and radio station) and the Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU).


The Education Library provides a beautiful study environment and houses a specialist collection of over 55,000 items on education and related fields.

It is staffed by a team of friendly and experienced professionals who offer personalised information services and support for students throughout their academic studies. The librarians are experts in searching and sourcing materials both digitally and in print, and provide advice and training for students on the literature search/research cycle.
