Advice on writing your thesis

Your thesis is likely to be the largest document you ever write and it is a major challenge for all students. Deakin provides a considerable amount of support and advice to help you with the writing up of your thesis. There is also a wealth of information available from the internet and other avenues of support.

The Library and Division of Student Life run a number of writing related workshops.

Thesis writing groups

You can join a thesis writing group on your campus. Sessions are held regularly and are facilitated by Language and Learning Advisers in the Division of Student Life. Alternatively, you can attend an online thesis writing group.

A Thesis Writing Group timetable can be viewed on the HDR support page.

Other avenues of support

The Thesis Whisperer is a newspaper style blog dedicated to the topic of doing a thesis.
