Choosing your Degree Course

Choosing the course that’s right for you is one of the most important parts of the admissions process. It’s important to research this choice thoroughly, as there may be more course options available in your area of subject interest than you realise.

Rather than simply choosing a specific subject – usually, one you’re already studying at school – it can be useful to instead think about your interests and motivations more broadly when deciding what to study at university: what you most enjoy learning about, why you enjoy it, and how you like to learn about it.

For this reason, below you will find information about our courses, grouped into broad interest areas. We hope this might help you discover courses you might not have considered before, but which play to your interests and strengths.

 

When choosing a course, remember:

 

  • You must always ensure your qualifications meet the entry requirements for your chosen course. It’s pointless to apply for courses for which you are wrongly qualified, no matter how good you are at what you’re currently studying.
  • But don’t make assumptions about what qualifications you will need for a certain course. While some courses will have essential subject requirements, others might only have ‘useful’ or ‘recommended’ subjects, if any. You’d be surprised how useful a subject like A Level Maths can be, for a History degree.
  • Research any courses you are considering thoroughly.  Courses at Cambridge may have the same name as those at other universities, but their content and methods of teaching and assessment might differ dramatically. Consider whether the specific Cambridge course maps on to what you’re interested in, and how you like to learn and be assessed. It’s okay if the Cambridge course is not for you!
  • Consider less obvious choices; remember that you don’t necessarily need to study a degree in a subject you’ve directly studied at school.
  • If you’re thinking ahead, familiarise yourself with the diversity of career paths open to graduates, and the diversity of ways one might enter a particular career. You don’t, for example, necessarily need to study an undergraduate degree in law to become a Lawyer.
