Access the settings for Key Bindings - User

This can be found under preferences.


Add the following

When your key bindings/keymap settings file opens up, add the following between the open and close brackets.

    { "keys": ["ctrl+tab"], "command": "next_view" },
    { "keys": ["ctrl+shift+tab"], "command": "prev_view" },


Save and close the file

Since you've edited the Key Bindings - User preferences file, your settings will be saved even when you update Sublime.
