istock_000004735385xsmall_researchersAre you thinking about your Master’s dissertation, but not sure how to get started? Do you want to know more about the process in general?

The Students Association has organized a lunch where you can get advice from several University services as well as students themselves!

There will be introductions from the Institute for Academic Development, the English Language Teaching Centre, and the Advice Place/Peer Proofreading on the support available to you.

Then you’ll have the opportunity to ask your own questions and hear from other students who have completed a dissertation.

Bring along your dissertation ideas, questions about managing your dissertation, and hear what others will be working on. It’ll be the perfect occasion to help you plan ahead for your
dissertation summer and ease any concerns!

Watch out for an event in the summer that will focus on finishing off your dissertation and what may be next.
