Hi I'm really interested in doing a postgraduate degree at Oxford. I'm currently in my second year of a primary education degree at Durham which I love but with all the rubbish that's going on in schools due to the government and and the fact I have loved academic assignments I am considering going into academia and doing a masters. I would love to do a masters course in education or child development and Oxford seems like a great course. However, I don't know whether I would be accepted as I'm doing a primary ed degree not straight education or psychology. I have always wanted to study at Oxford or Cambridge but due to having anorexia and depression at high school I wanted to study closer to home and I thought there was no way I would get in because I come from a poorer area of Leeds. . However, I'm fully recovered now. I achieved 4 a stars at a level and have revived firsts in all modules except science so far whilst at Durham.
Do you think I would get in or do you think I should consider other universities such as Huddersfield or Birmingham?
Also how on earth would I finance such a degree? Would it be better to study at home in Leeds?

Nobody here can tell you if you'd get in or not, you need to email the postgrad admission tutors and ask them if they'd consider an applicant with a primary education degree. You can take out a postgrad loan to fund your master's.
