Thesis Boot Camp

CHASE Thesis Boot Camp

6 - 8 April | University of Sussex

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.

Although it might sound intimidating, you’ll experience a warm atmosphere at Thesis Boot Camp. You will also meet other researchers in a similar situation and discover many tips for overcoming common problems. We’ll create the conditions in which you feel encouraged to completely immerse yourself in your writing. You’ll also receive guidance in advance on how to get the most out of the weekend. Catherine will help you develop an effective writing process for Thesis Boot Camp and beyond.

Dr Catherine Pope is a freelance research and writing skills trainer. Since gaining her PhD from the University of Sussex in 2014, Catherine has worked with over 2,000 researchers across the South East through workshops, coaching, and e-learning. You can find out more at

It was all so good! It was great to have Catherine there to support us and also to give us encouragement, tips and advice. She was very calm and I think made a lot of us feel like we can really get our theses finished on time. It was also nice to be in an environment where everyone is just focused on writing. I have changed the way that I see my work and am definitely going to carry on with the new practices of writing that I learnt over the weekend and change where I work.
Thesis Boot Camp was an incredibly productive environment.
I am so glad that I attended it, I made immense progress. Moreover, I have been able to maintain the momentum and motivation I gained at the camp
