Register for waiting list

This workshop is fully booked! But you can sign up for the waiting list and we'll let you know if a spot becomes available.

Where and how do I begin? How can I give myself the best chance of writing a good degree project report and cope with the challenges of such a project? These are some of the questions we will answer in the first workshop. We’ll work on background reading, managing references, establishing a research aim, and planning your writing.

The writing focus for this workshop is sections and subsections. You will learn to:

  • Get familiar with guidelines and grading criteria  

  • Find a knowledge gap and decide on a research aim and/or question(s)  

  • Find relevant academic literature

  • Collect and manage references with reference management software

  • Plan a structure 

About the degree project workshops

Writing a degree project report can be a challenging experience. To support you in the different phases of producing the report, the Centre for Academic Writing and Rhetoric and KTH Library will offer a series of three workshops during the spring semester 2023. You may sign up for one, two, or all three workshops.

The workshops will include short presentations on relevant themes, time to work with these themes on your own degree project report, and possibilities to get individual support.
