Summer Term Dissertation Events

dissertation-page-header  

A dissertation is a major part of most master’s programmes; and for many students, it is one of the most rewarding aspects of their study at LSE.

In the last few weeks of Summer Term, LSE LIFE is covering the essentials of dissertation writing – from structuring and referencing to planning and conducting your summer time research. We’re also running a series of casual sessions designed to get you talking with other people also doing dissertations – even just explaining your topic to someone else can improve your own understanding!

All of the talk recordings, slides and handouts from the sessions we've already run are available on our Moodle page.
