We often hear from students that they have trouble structuring their days, making realistic work plans, and sticking to deadlines – especially in the current circumstances. It can help to meet a group of fellow students who are also working on their thesis – like a virtual study group, or library buddies. It’s a remote support system to hold you accountable to your own goals and help you balance your time better.
Each small group (max. 6 students) will be led by a writing tutor. During the week, you will meet your group twice a day via Zoom for an interactive session: once in the morning, to discuss your plan and goals for the day, and once at the end of the afternoon, to discuss how it went and adjust your goals if necessary. You can also make an individual appointment with your tutor during the week to discuss (part of) your thesis in more detail.
Please note that Thesis Week is not a series of workshops or lectures with information on how to write a thesis.
Because we work with small groups of students, there are a limited number of spots available, and they fill up quickly.
