Event description

Description

This half-day workshop is designed to help PhD students in an advanced stage of their programme in consolidating their data and writing up their theses. Those who sign up must bring their theses-in-progress so that they will have a chance to apply what they have learnt to their own work.

The session consists of three sections:

1. Where am I now?
In this first section, we will look at what you need to know nearing the submission, including relevant deadlines, forms to fill in, the examiner nomination procedure, how to apply for a continuation status and what happens once the status is granted.

2. Changing gears
This second section aims to facilitate the switching from the fieldwork mode to the full-time writing mode.

3. Time to draw the line
The key to a successful completion is to realise when to draw the line to wrap up and move on, understanding that a PhD project is only the beginning of your research career. In this last section, participants will devise an exit plan and consider a quality control mechanism in the final revision process.

This course is available to current SOAS PhD students only.
