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 whilst 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.

TranSkills works with academic staff and students to facilitate the transition of first year undergraduates from their prior learning experiences to study at university.

Useful resources

  • Basic Cell Biology notes
    Directed especially toward those students who have not done A Level biology. The aim of the notes is to provide students with a basic grounding in the concepts and vocabulary of cell biology; they will not make students expert cell biologists, but will enable students to understand subsequent lectures in the MVST.
  • Essential Maths
    Moodle course offering audio-visual tutorials for the maths skills you are likely to need for Medics, Vets, Natural Scientists and Biologists. MVST students are enrolled during their preclinical years. Contact if you need access.
