Thesis Boot Camp

Applications for Thesis Boot Camp are now closed.

Thesis Boot Camp is an intensive and supportive writing environment for late-stage PGRs to make significant progress on the first draft of their thesis. It does not provide specific advice on editing, restructuring, or polishing a thesis – the focus is on overcoming writer’s block to produce a large number of words. 

In addition to ample writing time, the programme will include breaks for physical exercise and to socialise with other PGRs at the same stage of study.

The next Thesis Boot Camp will in person in the PGR Hub over three days on the 18 - 20 November: 

  • Friday 18 November, 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm  
  • Saturday 19 November 9:30 am – 7:45 pm 
  • Sunday 20 November 9:30 am – 7:45 pm

Participants are required to attend all 3 days to support each other as a cohort and complete preparatory tasks in advance to maximise results. There will also be the option to attend a 1:1 consultation with a writing tutor on the 17th or 18th of November.
