Drop and give me 20! …20,000 words, that is.

Are you a late-candidature graduate researcher struggling with the writing-up battle? Do you put off writing tasks until tomorrow? Or are you finding it tough ‘going it alone’ on the writing-up journey? Yes?

We have just what you need – Thesis Boot Camp! Dedicated solely to getting words down on paper (or a computer screen), this program is designed to help you get over that final hurdle or to kick-start your writing progress if it has stalled.

Join other graduate research comrades at the same candidature stage in a no-excuses, no-time-for-procrastination, take-no-prisoners intensive writing weekend. Not for the faint hearted, Thesis Boot Camp recruits will battle through third-year blues, writer’s block and thesis fatigue to achieve significant progress on their manuscript.

Introductory sessions will include motivational talks, goal setting and strategies for writing quickly and well. Support staff will be on hand and catering will be provided to ensure an encouraging, distraction-free environment. Attendees will be required to complete pre-program planning activities and to commit to their own tangible aims for the weekend, such as completing a thesis chapter draft or similar.

Are you up for the challenge?
