This workshop is for suitable for all taught postgraduate (PGT) students who are thinking about starting or have started their dissertation.

A dissertation is a key part of a masters programme. It’s a chance for you to plan and undertake a significant body of your own research. This can be a very rewarding experience, but can present many challenges: What exactly is a dissertation and what does it look like? Where do I start? When do I stop? How do I do it?

This interactive workshop will focus on practical strategies for successfully completing your dissertation; from emphasizing the importance of good planning to actually getting started with writing. Themes of the workshop include:

  • Effective planning
  • Thinking about the examiner’s point of view
  • Critical reading and analysis of sources, and writing
  • Effective writing
