Is your thesis good enough? Examination and the PhD

How do you know if your thesis is good enough to be worth a PhD? It’s important to know what you are trying to write and how it will be read by your external examiners. The September Pomodoro Break will identify what examiners expect to see in your thesis (whether it is presented as a conventional monograph, by compilation, or by creative practice) and how you can make it easy for them to understand that you meet the requirements for the degree.

In this Pomodoro Break course you will:

  • Identify the criteria for examination
  • Understand examiners’ expectations
  • Provide what examiners need to navigate your work

The course will run over a week, starting with a Zoom coffee meeting on Monday 14 Sept. Then we’ll send you a link each day to a short blog post that provides some stimulating reading, links to relevant material, provocative questions and useful activities. All up, the reading and responding will take around 30 minutes each day – just enough time to drink your coffee. Finally, we’ll reconvene in Zoom on Friday afternoon to debrief and resolve any remaining questions.

To register, please provide your details here.
