Are you a mid- or late-stage doctoral researcher, struggling to make progress with your thesis? Do you keep putting off your writing? If so, Thesis Boot Camp could be the solution. Facilitated by Dr Catherine Pope, this 3-day event provides an intensive and supportive writing environment to help you reach your goals. The programme includes short tutorials, group discussions, and 1-2-1 discussions with Catherine. And lots of food, too.

If you are allocated a place but can no longer attend, please email email@example.com so that your place can be reallocated. CHASE training is free to attend and events are often oversubscribed with a waiting list.
