Final year project support

Want to get on top of writing your final year project this March? Spend the afternoon focusing solely on the skills and techniques you need to make progress with your research project.

This half-day bootcamp is tailored specifically to final year project students in Biosciences and Sport programmes and will address how to write critically, a key skill in gaining the best marks.  You can also participate in ‘shut up and write sessions’ in a study café environment, so you can get over any writing blocks and make progress with your work.

Tea and coffee will be available with help on hand from the project module team, as well as the academic success coaches, Academic Language Support Service, and Subject Librarians, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

There will be workshops on the following dates:

  • 7 March 1pm – 4pm
  • 22 March 9.30am – 12.30pm
