Key messages from 'Software for Academic Use'

This section has provided you with a variety of different types of software that you can try out, nearly always for free. The key messages included:

  • You may not have much time to invest in getting to grips with new software once your course begins, so if any of the software listed here appeals to you, it is worth trying out as soon as possible.
  • There is support available in using software once you've arrived in Cambridge - especially reference management software, LateX, and statistics software - but there's also lots of guidance online.
