The doctoral thesis is shrouded in mystery and often we’re too overwhelmed to unravel it.

With essential advice and guidance on writing a thesis in the Arts & Humanities or Social Sciences, this practical training is suitable for doctoral researchers who are about to start writing as well as those who have already begun.

The emphasis is on planning and structuring your thesis, and motivating yourself to start writing.

By the end of the training you’ll have:

  • Understood the requirements and elements of a doctoral thesis
  • Assessed what you’ve already achieved and what is left to do
  • Received guidance on developing the structure and content of your thesis
  • Discovered useful tips for planning and scheduling the writing (and finishing) of your thesis

This training is aimed at early- and mid-stage PhD students in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
