Kick-Off Workshop for Master Theses

Writing Assistants and employees at the Center for Teaching and Learning of the University of Vienna offer a workshop for students who have registered their thesis and confirmed their topic with their supervisor. For two consecutive days, the focus of this workshop is on narrowing down your topic, drafting an outline to structure your thesis, and introducing you to effective writing and revising techniques. In addition, the focus is also on planning your project and reflecting on your approach to academic writing. The aim of this workshop is to “kick-off” your project and enable you to get started on your thesis.
