Dissertation Boot Camp (Winter 2020, weekly model)Export this event to calendar

Sunday, February 3, 2019 — 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM EST

Stop stalling. Start writing.

Dissertation Boot Camp is designed to help dissertation writers get a jump start on meeting their writing goals. It combines dedicated writing time, goal setting and writing strategy sessions, and one-one meetings with our writing specialists.

This sustained (weekly) Dissertation Boot Camp program will take place over eight weeks rather than an intensive four days. The program runs every Monday beginning February 3 and ending March 30 (excluding the Family Day holiday) from 9:00am to 12:30pm. 

The next intensive, four-day program will take place (both in person and online) from April 13 to 16. Applications for this intensive program will become available after the January 10 deadline to apply for the sustained program. 

Rules of participation

PhD and masters students are welcomed to apply. Please note that Engineering students writing their dissertation proposals are invited to apply.

The Dissertation Boot Camp program combines dedicated writing time, goal setting and writing strategy sessions, and one-on-one meetings with our writing specialists.

Dissertation Boot Camp has strict parameters for participation. Before applying, please think ahead to each week of the camp and decide whether you can meet the following expectations:

  • Come to Boot Camp prepared to write.
  • Participate in short, skill-building workshops. 
  • If you have lab responsibilities, you will need to find lab coverage. 
  • Follow the guidelines provided by staff and/or the group. For example, we may ask you to shut off your internet access during writing sessions. 
  • You should set concrete goals for the program. We recommend that you meet with your supervisor to discuss your goals.
  • Gather all of the materials you will need to write productively (articles, data, previous drafts with comments, research notes, etc.).
