Writing & Structuring an Effective Thesis - Webinar
Domain: D2 Communication and dissemination

TACE: C - Completion

Due to Covid-19 we have secured repeats of three of the most popular topics led by Dr Simon Watts via the popular UEA webinar series exclusively for the Cardiff University PGR community.

This session, as the name suggests, will focus on the writing – style, structure and presentation – of an effective PhD thesis. Using examples throughout, attendees will be shown how to access relevant exemplar theses in their subject area and issues covered will include the overall chapter structure, the aims and presentation of specific chapters (including the introduction, literature review, theoretical/methodological chapters, study chapters, and general discussion), and the manner in which they might or should be combined to create an effective and impactful thesis. The need to create a single ‘golden thread’ or ‘guiding narrative’ for the thesis will also be emphasised. Writing an 80-100000 word document is very difficult indeed and this session is designed to help break the task into manageable chunks.

You’ll need to download the Electa webinar software, before you join a live session. You can do this on your PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Joining instructions will be sent closer to the session date.

Places are limited and on a first come first served basis.
