Final Year Thesis Writing 1
From Michael Seery on February 3rd, 2021
I am looking forward to giving the first session this semester on thesis writing. This session is being given to all BSc and MChem students as the thesis components are near identical (noting some minor differences in assessment weightings). You can join at the link posted by Moira above "Presentation 1". It starts at 3.15 Edinburgh time.
We’ll focus on:
1. Overall thesis assessment; things to know from the start
2. Writing and structuring the thesis opening chapter (this year renamed to “Project Background and Objectives” to emphasise its core purpose)
3. Some notes on writing Experimental Chapter
4. Getting started with Results and Discussion chapter – some headline thoughts and a strategy
Please feel free to type any questions in the chat. Obviously I can’t answer specific chemistry questions for your project, but will happily try to answer general writing questions.
Slides for today’s session are attached along with thesis templates (also on Learn). It will be recorded
