The Founding of Oxford and Cambridge
 
10:42
My fiance will be starting her masters at Cambridge in a few months and I wanted to learn more about the founding and history of the university to I turned to youtube and nothing came up so I decided to create my own bite sized documentary on the history of Cambridge and Oxford (Oxbridge). If I get positive feedback on this I might make some more. Sources (mostly from memory but also): Alan B. Cobban, English University Life in the Middle Ages. Columbus: Ohio State University Press, 1999. Stephen Ferruolo, The Origins of the University: The Schools of Paris and Their Critics, 1100–1215. Stanford: Stanford University Press, 1998. http://www.gutenberg.org/files/20958/20958-h/20958-h.htm http://lollardsociety.org/pdfs/Rashdall_Universities_vol2pt2.pdf Approximate Script: To understand the founding of Oxford and Cambridge we need to understand what a university was at the intersection of the early middle ages and the high middle ages. In that period the concept of the university was very different from what it is today. Before universities arose individuals would either be tought at Monastic schools focused in rural monastaries or by wandering scholars. It is the second tradition that gave rise to the medivial university.

Cambridge University - 1945 British Council Film Collection - CharlieDeanArchives / Archival Footage
 
23:06
The University of Cambridge, and the life of those who study there. Trivia: Several renowned academics appear in Cambridge. Sir Lawrence Bragg, in his capacity as Director of the Cavendish Laboratory, would play a part in the discovery of the structure of DNA in 1953. Historian George Trevelyan, had earlier been approached by the British Council to write the script for experimental film Magna Carta. Other seen in the film include Sir William Spens, composer Patrick Hadley, and Sir John Sheppard. Women appear throughout Cambridge and might seem to be ordinary members of the university, but this is not the case. Though women were allowed to study courses, sit exams, and gain degrees, they were not admitted as full members of the university until 1948. This film has been made available by the British Council Film Collection for non-commercial research and educational purposes . . The British Council Film Collection consists of 120 short documentaries made by the British Council during the 1940s designed to show the world how Britain lived, worked and played.

James Stirling - Faculty of History
 
06:35
Completed in 1967 and opened in 1968, the History Faculty building by Sir James Stirling was one of the most controversial buildings in Cambridge and one that was nearly razed to the ground in the 1980s. Fifty years since its completion, the building is now Grade 2 listed and seen by many as a masterpiece of post-war architecture by one of Britains leading architects; Sir James Stirling. This video looks at the moment leading up to the building of the History Faculty and the work of Sir James Stirling. Lord Richard Rogers talks about Stirling’s work at Cambridge and the influence it had on his generation of architects.

Europe in 1914 and a century later: history lecture
 
01:26:34
Europe in 1914 and a century later: history lecture Please join us for a fascinating conversation with Christopher Clark, Professor of Modern European History at Cambridge University and author of The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914 as we discuss the most significant events that led to the outbreak of World War I during this year’s centenary commemoration and reflect on the contemporary similarities. Once again, Europe is witnessing resurgent nationalism that has led to the rise of extremist groups seeking to undermine the status quo. Russia, too, is once more emboldened by the perceived imperative to defend its ethnic and religious kin abroad. And the U.S., exhausted after decades of involvement overseas, has adopted a foreign policy increasingly reminiscent of pre-Wilsonian isolationism. Professor Clark will examine the historic parallels between Europe then and now, and share his thoughts on why Europe went to war in 1914.

Example Cambridge Law Admissions Interview
 
33:30
This video shows a mock admissions interview for the Cambridge BA Tripos Degree in Law, conducted at Trinity College, Cambridge in November 2017. This video is intended to give potential applicants an idea of what an interview might be like. The video is a typical, representative example of a Cambridge Law admissions interview – but please do not think of it as a model, perfect or ideal interview: exactly what a Law admissions interview looks like varies from college to college and from interviewer to interviewer. In this interview, two interviewers spend 20-25 minutes speaking with the candidate, Rhianna, who is a Cambridge undergraduate but not a Law student. Rhianna was given a page containing a short set of facts, together with information about the relevant law, 30 minutes before the interview. You can download the information which the candidate was given at: https://resources.law.cam.ac.uk/documents/Law_Factual_Scenario_Example.pdf Most Cambridge Law admissions interviews include an exercise related to law or related to more general moral or practical reasoning but, again, practice varies from college to college and interviewer to interviewer. Although the exercises often raise legal issues, or even involve the use of legal tests, candidates are not generally expected to have, and are not being tested on, any legal knowledge: if any law is required to complete the exercise, it will be provided. Even where candidates have indicated (on their application forms) that they have already studied some law – such as at A Level – we only expect them to know as much of the law as they have studied. Note that candidates coming to Cambridge for interview will also be required to sit the Cambridge Law Test (CLT); you can read more about the CLT and view some example papers at: http://ba.law.cam.ac.uk/applying/cambridge_law_test/

A short listening exercise for the TEFL classroom about Oxford and Cambridge. Oxford and Cambridge are famous for having the oldest and second-oldest universities in the English-speaking world, but there is no single university campus in ___________ place; the beautiful colleges are spread all over both towns. The first colleges Teaching existed in Oxford as early as the 11th century, and the earliest colleges were University College, Merton and Balliol, and they were supported by the Church. The architecture of many of the colleges reflects this _________________ with the Church – most have a central square called a ‘quad’, which is similar to the design of a monastery. The original medieval scholars entered the universities mainly to be educated as clerics, and in medieval times colleges were founded so that their students would pray for the souls of their founders. For this ____________ many colleges have their own chapel, and Christ Church in Oxford has its own cathedral. In Cambridge, King’s College Chapel (left) is a spectacular ____________ which was started during the reign of Henry VI and finished during Henry VIII’s reign. The oak screen inside was a gift from Henry VIII, and has his and Ann Boleyn’s initials carved on it. After the dissolution of the monasteries in 1536 Henry VIII ordered the closure of the Faculty of Church Law, so studies were more focused on Classics (__________ & Latin), Mathematics and the Bible. Men Only Originally all the colleges were for men. From around 1880 women were allowed to sit examinations, but could not become full members of the university (and therefore could not get a degree) _______ 1920 in Oxford and 1947 in Cambridge. Oxford’s literary connections Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, was a student and then a lecturer in ______________ at Christchurch; his real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. J. R. R. Tolkien was a student at Oxford and returned as a lecturer at Pembroke College. It was during this time that he wrote The Hobbit and the first two volumes of The Lord of the Rings. He was part of a literary ___________ that included C. S. Lewis, the author of The Chronicles of Narnia. During the 1930s and 40s the group would often meet at the Eagle and Child pub on St Giles Street.
