Masters Dissertation Preparation Day

The School’s first Masters Dissertation Preparation Day was held on 24 May 2016, in the Graduate School. To see what we did last year, please visit our Programme page.

The 2018 MA Dissertation Preparation Day will take place as follows:

Date: Wednesday 30th May 2018

Venue: C17, Pope Building

The event is an opportunity to learn more about the challenges of a larger-scale research project, about supervision and support, and about the resources available to MA researchers at the University of Nottingham. 

Whole group
The Masters Dissertation Preparation Day brings together our postgraduate students as an academic community.


There will be a variety of discussion sessions throughout the day. This is also an excellent chance to resolve any early questions about the dissertation, and to talk about your proposal and intended thesis.

Dissertation Day is also a social occasion, bringing together our postgraduate students as an academic community and building networks that will help you shape and finish your project. Abundant refreshments, including wine (both colours) will be provided. Come along and celebrate the conclusion of your taught modules and the submission of your assignments!
