Thesis boot camp

June 2018

Beyond the classroom, what to aspire to and be involved. Our graduate researchers, thesis boot camp and more.

The Thesis Boot Camp was held in June and the event was a great success, bringing together our graduate researchers reaching their personal goals and supporting them to the finishing line. Many students use these events to kick-start their thesis chapters and finish feeling proud of their achievement. Support staff are on hand and catering is provided to ensure an encouraging, distraction-free environment.

Applicants are expected to spend the weekend writing (not formatting and editing or referencing but writing!) and should aim to produce at least 1-2 chapters by the end of the camp. We do give you some writing tips that can help you write your thesis in a more efficient manner. All of this and we cater too.

“Appreciate the handwork that goes in organising the event – thank you. It is always useful to come to such forum that motivates us to seriously take up writing where we’ve been procrastinating far too long”

“The best aspect of the Thesis Boot Camp is to be in a room with people having a common goal – write!”

“Thanks to all organisers for their time and effort throughout the past 3 days!! It is greatly appreciated”

“Thesis Boot Camp was an excellent experience for me. It will be really helpful if we can have more of these events throughout the semesters. Thank you. By the way, I loved the stretching exercises”

“The best part of Thesis Boot Camp was not having to worry about anything but writing, as all basic needs were covered”

“The atmosphere was very helpful for me to concentrate”
