Writing your Thesis in English

The Thesis Writing course provides a structured process that assists Bachelor and Master's students across the university in working towards the completion of their thesis over eight weeks. By regularly writing a further part of your thesis for each session, you can systematically work towards this goal. In addition, detailed feedback by the lecturer and peers, followed by revision of your text help you to turn your own data and/or concepts into a submittable manuscript. In this process, the focus is on writing it right: that is, eliminating language that obscures what you want to say and instead using correct and clear expressions that are appropriate to each part of the thesis and that get your message across to the examiner.
Approximate time for home assignments: 3 hours between each class.
