The Writing Bootcamp is a multi-session online course for final-year PhD students at different institutions associated with BIST, who aim to submit their theses at the end of 2022. The contents offered consist of a balanced mix of theory and tools, practical experience and discussions.

The course is composed of a total of six 2-hour sessions over 7 weeks in Spring 2022. Sessions 1&2 will be mostly theory based with short exercises to cover much of the skills and know-how of thesis writing, while sessions 3-6 will begin with a 30 min theory session followed by personal writing time.
