Hello everyone

I've been offered a place at Homerton College, Cambridge to study Education with English. What do people here think of both the college and the course?

Any views would be most welcome!

Thanks.

Thanks Keithy - Speaking as a person who has visited Cambridge and most of the collages I can say that each of the colleges have their individual merits. The city itself it gorgeous. I picked Homerton specifically for Education Studies but also because i felt it is perhaps less intimidating that the others...e.g Kings.

Applying to Homerton is like getting into Cambridge by the back door.

You wrote that you applied to Homerton for Education Studies. Tell me, did you apply for Education Studies at other unies too?

Actually education studies at homerton is much harder to get into than in many other cambridge colleges.

i think i agree with musicboy. homerton is not as easy to get in as most may think. especially for non education subjects. i have a friend there and he applied not just because of a guaranteed scholarship but also ensuite rooms + girls...

apparently they have a world famous hacker at homerton that's why my mate applied.

Homerton also does teacher training (my sis went there for that) which is why its often thought of as a backdoor, because teachers training isn't very competitive there.
