Workshop synopsis


This series of workshops has been designed for HRDSs in the Sydney School of Education and Social Work who have completed at least one year full time of a research degree and have passed their thesis proposal meeting.

  • understand expectations of thesis/dissertation writing

  • write in appropriate academic style
