BRS ONLINE WORKSHOP | Finish it! How to finalize your dissertation and how to focus on finishing right from the beginning

UPDATE: This workshop is now offered as an online course via Moodle & Big Blue Button. 
Please note, that there will be basic technical support before and during the conference by the Bauhaus Research School. We will send you an email with preliminary details on how to login and access the course room a few days before the course starts.

Between 30 and 50 % of all PhD students in Germany do not finish their doctoral theses. There are many reasons for that, but most of them can be eliminated: if you have done a master’s or similar degree with good results you will be able to finish a PhD too.

In this workshop, you will learn how to focus as early as possible on finishing your PhD. The workshop covers the following topics:

Topics of the workshop:

  • How to define and set goals and how to do self-management
  • How to motivate yourself and how to deal with demotivation
  • How to structure the work and writing process
  • How to deal with writer’s bloc
  • How to work with your supervisor
  • Science myths demystified
  • Relevant regulations you need to know

For this workshop, you need a stable internet connection, microphone and webcam. Please make sure your internet connection allows you to leave webcam switched on throughout the workshop.
