The thesis and report writing course is relevant for research students at any stage.


This course covers methods of managing and controlling the process of thesis and report writing, as well as meeting deadlines. It also discusses the principles and practice of high-quality scholarly writing. It includes:

  • The production of reports, papers and theses from a time and project management point of view
  • The writing task itself: this includes logical argument construction, the importance of structure in a document, appropriate style to be used in academic writing, and how to make the actual writing process as pain-free and effective as possible.
  • An opportunity for you to critique a short paper with your group.


All graduate research students.
