Thesis Writing Support Program for Postgraduate Research Students

The Learning Centre is offering a thesis writing support program for postgraduate research students.

The program provides students with feedback on their writing and assistance with any specific writing problem. It involves collaborative editing and individual discussion of each student’s work.

As students are expected to bring several pages of their own writing to each meeting, the TWSP is suitable only for those who are already writing on a regular basis. It is not suitable for students in their first year.

Participants attend five small groups sessions with an experienced facilitator. The program runs for a ten week period and consists of fortnightly meetings (at various times during the week). Groups will be small (no more than five students) and, as much as is feasible, will be discipline-based. Liaison with supervisors is welcomed.

In semester 1, meetings begin in weeks 3 and 4, on various dates.

We strongly encourage students from a particular school to apply as a group. Such groups have been particularly successful in the past.

Enrolling for the program
