CamGuides: Becoming a Graduate Student

Resources for further reading

Skills for OU study - a series of really useful short courses covering everything to do with the development of good academic practices, and lots of information you can access without signing up for the courses. There's also a section specific related to postgraduate study.

The Palgrave Study Skills series has several general and some subject-specific books on developing your academic skills - everything from writing a dissertation proposal to revising for exams. Some of these are quite expensive, but you might find that libraries in Cambridge have copies you can borrow, if you come up early.
