Research students can often encounter difficulties with writing towards the end of their degree.
Thesis Boot Camp helps you do a large amount of work on your thesis and develop productive writing habits in a single weekend.
The original format of Thesis Boot Camp was devised in 2012 by Dr Peta Freestone at the University of Melbourne.
It has been developed over the last few years and hosted at many universities around the world.The Australian National University (ANU) runs a Thesis Boot Camp (#ANUTBC) program based on a concept created and developed by Dr Liam Connell and Peta Freestone at The University of Melbourne.Thesis Boot Camp at ANU is proudly sponsored by the Postgraduate and Research Students' Association (PARSA).Support is provided through short tutorials, motivational talks, and 1-2-1 consultations with the facilitator.Attendees are required to complete preparatory tasks to get the most out of the weekend.We would like to thank PARSA, who generously fund two Thesis Boot Camps annually.Thesis Boot Camp is a three-day intensive writing workshop for middle-to-final stage higher degree by research (HDR) candidates with a substantial research writing task ahead of them.The Thesis Boot Camp workshop is about getting words ”on paper” and is designed to help research candidates overcome hurdles in the final phase of their degree or to kick-start their writing progress if it has stalled.This popular workshop returns to RMIT Friday 20 September 2019.Typically, the timings are as follows: The facilitator fee for planning, preparation and delivery is £2,000 plus travel and accommodation.All catering costs are covered by the host institution.
