Her undergraduate degree in Archaeology and History was taken at the University of Southampton. She holds an MA from SOAS (University of London), and a PhD from the University of Cambridge, where her research on Anglo-Saxon landscapes bridged archaeology, history and historical geography.

Dr Oosthuizen also holds a PGCE (University of Cambridge) and has a strong interest in community engagement in higher education.
