Brought to you by the Academic Skills Centre.
This series of 50 minute seminars is aimed at students who are writing a Master's or PhD thesis. These sessions together comprise a single course; however, students can attend only those sessions they will find useful.
3pm: Literature reviews
2pm: Thesis structure and planning
3pm: Critical reading and note-taking*
2pm: Writing a coherent thesis
3pm: Time management
*Note: The workshops on proposals and on critical reading and note-taking are split into two groups: one for qualitative research and the other for quantitative research.
By the end of the sessions, students should be able to:
• Understand the overall purpose and structure of the proposal
• understand library resources available to them and structure a literature review as part of a thesis
• plan for and structure a thesis
• know how to read critically and take notes efficiently and effectively
• deploy key strategies for creating thesis coherence
• create a realistic work schedule and meet key deadlines
