SFU Library's Research Commons Thesis Boot Camp

January 13, 2016

One of the most difficult tasks facing a graduate student is writing their thesis. Thesis Boot Camp is a multi-day workshop which provides current SFU graduate students with the opportunity to spend three days dedicated to making serious progress on their dissertation or master’s thesis. 

In this popular and practical workshop, Dr. Ken Lertzman discusses common challenges faced by students in completing their thesis: fear, procrastination, project management, and writing strategies and mechanics. 

Thesis Boot Camp will be limited to 30 registrants, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The fee for participating is $42.00 (including GST). Payment can be made online through Continuing Studies.

February 16-18, 2016 from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm at Harbour Centre, SFU Vancouver.
