After such a great success with last year's inaugural dissertation boot camp, the School of Graduate Studies with the Writing Centre and Learning Strategies will be holding two Boot Camps in 2013 (February and June).
Registration is open for both camps with preference going to those students nearing completion of their thesis.
For full details of the camps and how to apply go to the School of Graduate Studies website Events section at http://www.queensu.ca/sgs/events/boot.html
The Dissertation Boot Camp is an intensive week, designed to accelerate a graduate students progress in the final stages of writing their thesis. Participants commit to spending 4-5 days writing their dissertation in a comfortable environment dedicated to writing, with free lunches provided on some days, a limitless supply of coffee, tea and snacks (not to mention lots of bananas), and an inter-disciplinary cohort of fellow students at similar stages of thesis completion.
