While exam season is now over, many of us will be spending the rest of our summer working on our dissertation. Although it’s hard work, remember that there’s lots of help on offer throughout the coming months, and that taking care of yourself is also very important. We have compiled a list of useful resources below:
LSE LIFE is offering a range of dissertation workshops throughout the summer, which will touch on a list of topics ranging from data collection methods and writing a literature review to practicing mindfulness and taking care of yourself while working towards your deadline. You can find the schedule and registration links here.
You can also book one-to-one sessions with a Study Adviser, who will be able to provide more specific and tailored guidance – you can book an appointment whether you have a specific question, or if you’d just like to chat and develop your ideas a bit more. Remember, sometimes the best ideas come from just talking through your thoughts with someone else! You can find out more and book appointments here.
Besides workshops and appointments, there’s lots of useful online material available from LSE LIFE that you can look through in your own time. You can browse their selection here.
TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF
Finally, it’s also important to take care of yourself during such a busy time and thankfully LSE offers a range of wellbeing support over the summer – head over here to find out more! And remember that the Advice Service is always ready to offer guidance and support, so please don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns - you can find all of our links down below.
