Transkills: supporting transition to University


Development opportunities within the Tripos system

Mathematical ability is inherent in some disciplines, and it is important that all students maintain at least a rudimentary comprehension of numeracy.

Activities which demonstrate numeracy could include analysing data using statistical methods.

Extra-curricular development opportunities

These include:

  • managing personal finances;
  • fundraising;
  • acting as treasurer for a committee or society (this offers an opportunity to become familiar with financial accounts, spreadsheets and databases);
  • undertaking numeracy tests which are offered by the Careers Service.
