Session 1


At every stage of the development of your thesis, you need the language to articulate your ideas clearly.

The first session of the workshop will focus on communicating the general outline, introduction, and literature review sections of your thesis and on matching your language to its structure. We will pay particular attention to communicating your research and discussing your findings.


Session 2


The success of your thesis depends on more than just your research. You need to manage your audience’s expectations and make language choices that they feel are appropriate.

The second session of the workshop will focus on explaining different types of referencing styles and citations and crafting an effective abstract of your work. You will also work on matching your language and style to the levels expected of a thesis.
