Information on our Assignment and Dissertation Bootcamps for 2022-23.

Master your undergraduate dissertation in 4 weeks.

Our second bootcamp of the academic year breaks down the structure and process of writing an undergraduate dissertation. These will cover the key sections of your dissertation: literature searching, methodology, discussions, and how to write at 1st class standard.

We'll be confirming dates for these sessions soon - keep checking back or register your interest and we'll keep you updated by email.

Level 7 students are welcome at our bootcamp sessions but can also attend our Writing Gym in Summer 2023 - an online programme designed specifically for postgraduate students working on a dissertation or research programme. Bookmark our Writing Gym website and check back for details in the new year.

What can I expect from a bootcamp session? 

Sessions are online in Zoom, or if you can't make the session, you can choose to receive a copy ofthe slides and session recording instead. Two advisors lead the session, while our team of expert librarians and skills advisors are in the chat to answer any questions you might have.

In our sessions, we:

  • Break down the process: Gain a step-by-step understanding of how to plan and write an assignment at university level.

  • Share examples: We use student work examples to show you what successful assignment writing looks like. 

  • Answer your questions, no matter how small: A team of expert moderators are in the chat each week to answer questions live, and we offer weekly online drop-ins and 1-1 appointments between sessions.
