Why come to a Dissertation Clinic?

Our Study Skills Leaders can help with:

  • Setting up a study strategy
  • Understanding what is required in a dissertation
  • Setting up realistic goals for dissertation planning
  • Critical thinking and weighing up the arguments
  • How to develop a focus for your dissertation

We will recommend that you speak to your supervisor if it's something that we think you should be discussing with them.

If you would like to bring a printed sample of your work to help discussions, it needs to be no longer than 1000 words. Please note, we are not offering a proof reading service or support with English.
