Master the skills needed for your undergraduate dissertation or final-year project in 4 weeks! 

Our four core bootcamp sessions will run weekly on Tuesdays 12-1pm, starting February 22nd. These will cover the essentials of dissertations: critical writing, finding literature, tackling the methodology, and writing effective discussions and conclusions..

We don't ask students to share webcams or microphones, so feel free to bring your lunch to the sessions!

Get started - book a place.

UPDATE! Due to high demand, we are running an additional 'Writing a 1st class final year project' session at 2pm on Feb 22nd. Book your place above.

What can I expect from a bootcamp session? 

Sessions are online in Zoom, and we don't ask students to turn on their webcams. 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.

Our sessions are:

  • Goal-focused: Leave with strategies and a clear action plan for your upcoming assignments.

  • Productive: Focused, 60-minute sessions ensure you to get the most out of your time. 

  • Get answers fast: A team of expert moderators to answer your questions in the live chat, along with weekly online drop-ins and feedback seminars between sessions.
