During the latter stages of a doctorate students often find it difficult to get started in writing for their thesis and in ensuring they maintain the drive and motivation for successful thesis submission.

This workshop looks at the causes of loss of momentum in thesis writing, how we might remedy that and how to improve our writing skills. It looks at organisation for writing, some aspects of time management, finding the space and time to write whilst maintain a good work-life balance.

Professor Richard McClatchey will lead the workshop through short talks and interactive discussion together with hands-on exercises.

The workshop will also provide hints and tips about timely thesis completion and will investigate what an external examiner looks for in a thesis and, as a consequence, how a thesis might be structured, presented and defended in a viva voce.

This event is aimed at all postgraduate researchers.

Cost: Free to postgraduate researchers
