FASS620 Advanced Thesis Writing (Final Year Students only): Towards Completion


Module description

This course is workshop-based, and is aimed at students in their third/final year (or equivalent for part-time students). Because of the workshop based / interactive format, places are limited to 25. Places will be allocated in the following order of priority: FASS students; students who need to take the module this year; order of date of receipt of application. Students' attendance record at previous RTP modules will also be taken into consideration. Unsuccessful applicants will be placed on a waiting list; alternatively they may register for the online version of the module. As places on the module are limited, please inform the RTP Administrator as soon as possible if you no longer wish to take it, so that your place can be offered to another student.

The module takes the form of 4 sessions:

  • Case-study: 'Rachel's Story' (things that can go wrong and how to respond to them)
  • Trouble-shooting exercise (participants identify their own most pressing obstacles)
  • Towards the Final Draft (a close look at the final drafting/re-drafting process)
  • Countdown to Completion (the final six months: things you need to prepare for as you approach your final deadline).

The 'case-studies' and other hand-outs will be made available on the VLE in advance of the course and participants will be requested to print them off and bring them along. Instructions on how to access the VLE will be circulated a week or two in advance of the course.
