Everyone at university studies independently at some point, and we have included a page that helps you think about your perfect working space. You may have done some research about the different modes of learning before you applied to Cambridge. However, if you're uncertain about what is involved in a supervision or interested in how online learning takes place, take a quick look at these pages.
Different subjects will require different skills. We don't expect you to come to Cambridge having mastered them all. In fact, many will take years to develop.

Even if you don't have time to look at this section in detail, it worth knowing that there will be lots of support from your college and departmental libraries when you arrive to help you get started searching the library catalogue, iDiscover.
