This section has provided you with information to help you think through what it might mean to be a graduate student in your discipline at Cambridge. The key messages included:

  • There are a variety of different practices - time management, self-directed learning, critical thinking - which are required in all Master's degrees, but exactly how they manifest depends on your subject.
  • A really important thing you can do before you arrive in Cambridge is to try to find out (or re-read carefully) information about your course - how you will be taught and assessed, and what the key dates are.
