These activities are for any taught postgraduate student working on a dissertation or major project. They are designed to complement the input and advice you receive from your supervisor. These workshops are open to students of all disciplines, therefore they do not offer discipline-specific advice. If you have specific questions relating to your research design or method, please talk to your supervisor.

How to book

Destination:Dissertation webinars and workshops begin 2 June 2021. In the meantime you can still access self-paced learning resources in the Destination: Dissertation moodle

This year we will be offering live webinars and a small number of on-campus sessions, in addition to the self-paced learning resources. Capacity for the on-campus sessions is strictly limited due to social distancing, so book early to secure your place. Check the dates in the Upcoming Sessions box below to book.The most up-to-date sessions will always be on MyAdvantage.

We are also offering a limited number of one to one advice sessions. Book your Destination Dissertation Advice appointment on MyAdvantage.

If you have any trouble accessing any of the moodle resources please contact Erika on the email address above


All our sessions include an optional element of group or peer to peer work, including sharing your writing in a Moodle forum. There are short sections of audio and video in the Moodle activities, but transcripts are available all of them.

You may join in with audio, video, or via text chat during webinars. On-campus sessions will be socially distanced in line with guidance from the University, so you may have speak louder for peers to hear you.

We welcome students with visible and non-visible disabilities, specific learning differences, or other complex needs, in all of our workshops, both face to face and online.

We encourage you to get in touch if you have any specific access requirements, or need more information about the content and delivery method of a specific workshop. We will do our best to ensure that you are able to attend.
