You can sign up for workshops on PDMS (select 'Taught Postgraduate' from the drop down menu on the right).  Places are limited, so if you are no longer able to come, please cancel your place as soon as possible to allow someone on the waiting list to attend.

We are very excited to be able to offer two Dissertation Boot Camps this year.  This is a 1 and a half day intensive writing event, based on the extremely successful Thesis Boot Camp.

Participation is by application.  More information about the Boot Camp can be found here.


English as an additional language

If you are a PGT student who uses english as an additional language, there is extra dissertation support available via iELS. The service is available throughout the summer to help you with the process of researching, planning and writing your Masters dissertation, delivered via a workshop programme and through one-to-one tutorials.

You can find more information and booking forms on the iELS Moodle page
