Core Skills

Core skills and transferable skills are important for undergraduates, and you are encouraged to make the most of the resources and opportunities available while at university.

The centrally run Cambridge University Skills Portal is a great place to find out about resources and getting the most out of your time here.

In addition to this, there are resources for specific areas of study that you may find useful:

  • Essential maths - resources available for Medic and Vets, Natural Scientists and Biologists
  • TranSkills - Transkills works with academic staff and students to facilitate the transition of first year undergraduates from their prior learning experiences to study at university. Within TranSkills, it may be of particular interest to note the Academic Writing section
  • A Guide to Taking Electronic Notes - advice and suggestions on available software for using your electronic device to take notes in lectures.
