This is a practical and intensive 3 full day workshop where you will enhance your skills needed to finish the thesis from the very act of writing itself. Think Shut Up and Write but on steroids and with professional support! This session will be delivered over Zoom.

Target audience
Targeted at late-stage candidates (preferably leading up to the Thesis Review Progress Review or just past) who are in the final phases of writing up their thesis. Candidates who are prior to the Mid-Candidature Review should consider the CDF writing programs and Shut Up and Write.

Each day begins and ends with a briefing, stopping only for learning breaks and lunch. There will be three intensive 2.5-hour writing blocks spread out over the morning and afternoon. To ensure that your mind and body remain in peak thinking form, each day includes social time and self-care. Learning Advisors and Counsellors will be on hand at appointed times to offer tips and support.

Express your interest: This workshop has limited spaces available (approximately 30) and significant resourcing is invested in providing for our candidates. By submitting an application, you acknowledge that you are utilising a very limited space and agree to attend all three days in full. You MUST have sufficient access to internet connectivity all three days.

Applications close on 21 May at 11.59pm and you will be informed of the outcome by latest 5th June.

Finish That Thesis! is co-developed by the Graduate School and the Learning Advisors of Student Services. The idea for Finish That Thesis! is based on the Thesis Bootcamp (2012) by the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Melbourne.
