Masters Dissertation Support Programme

Destination: Dissertation

A summer programme of writing workshops for your dissertation or major project.

From drop in sessions and book recommendations to drawing argument maps, these new sessions from the Masters Skills Programme are designed to support you with your dissertation or major project report.

Destination:Dissertation will return in Summer 2020.

For more information, contact Erika Hawkes, Skills Development Manager: E dot Hawkes at warwick dot ac dot uk

These workshops 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.

Due to room availability over the summer we have very limited capacity for these sessions. Please book early to avoid disappointment. If you can no longer attend please cancel your session online so that we can offer your place to someone else on the waiting list.

Places may occasionally be available on the day of the workshops. You are welcome check with the tutor at the workshop if there is space. Please note that we cannot guarantee you a place if you chose to do this, and that the tutor’s decision is final


All our sessions include an element of group or peer to peer work, including sharing your writing. You are encouraged to ask questions and contribute throughout the session, or to speak privately to the tutor at the end.

We welcome students with visible and non-visible disabilities, specific learning differences, or other complex needs, in all of our workshops. The rooms we have been given to use over the summer are smaller than usual, please check here for room information and layout.

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.
