There are many ‘boot camp’ style writing programs at universities around the world, though the award-winning Thesis Boot Camp — designed and developed by Dr Peta Freestone— has proved a winning formula for more than a thousand graduate researchers in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
But don’t just take our word for it! After Thesis Boot Camp was introduced at the Australian National University, Dr Inger Mewburn of the popular Thesis Whisperer blog said:
The experience was amazing for me as an educator and the students loved it. They told others how great it was. Several people who had been contemplating quitting altogether actually handed in their thesis. FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) kicked in again and students who missed out the first time around actually lobbied ANU for more. We’re now about to run our third one.

Now we’re bringing Thesis Boot Camp to UiTM, with programme creator Dr Peta Freestone to facilitate the event.
The event is limited to 30 participants (a research student/PGR/PhD Student at UiTM)
