Throughout the year, Skills Lab organizes events for students working on their thesis. On this webpage you will find an overview of the upcoming events. 

Summer thesis groups

Will you continue to write on your thesis over the summer? Could you use the support of fellow students or the social control in the UB? During this time it can be more difficult to work on your thesis in a good and motivated way. Would you like to work on your thesis together with other students and get some extra structure into your day? Then sign up for an online summer thesis group.

Would you like some extra structure in your day and in your thoughts? Are you interested in tips, coaching and workshops that will help you write a better thesis faster? If so, you’ll definitely want to check out Thesis week.

(Online) Thesis Groups

The Online Thesis groups are intended for all students, regardless of their degree programme or study phase, who are working on their thesis at this moment and would like to have more regular contact with other students.This can be for various reasons: for example, you want to learn to plan better, work in a more concentrated and motivated manner, or because you’re struggling to write your thesis in general.
