ONLINE & PARTICIPATIVE: Jump starting your thesis proposal (Natural and Physical Sciences, including Health and Engineering)


Whether you are starting out, have not written a word yet, or need to check out how your written proposal measures up, Masters and PhD students at any stage of their proposal writing are welcome to join this online workshop. If you are at the beginning of the process and need help, please join us.  You will benefit from this workshop and everyone is welcome.


We start with writing your proposal using your faculty or department’s proposal template.

The workshop time is devoted to your starting to write your formal Masters/PhD proposal in real time.  By the end of the workshop, you will have developed your hypothesis (written up in the presence of a facilitator who can assist you with your questions about structure) and filled in as many sections as is possible in three hours.  Please note that ethics sections are discussed, but are not for completion in this workshop.

Useful to have with you for this workshop, where possible:

  • A faculty or departmental proposal template (if you have one);
  • Your supervisor approved topic;
  • A hypothesis statement OR research question, and
  • a list of any literature titles you have researched, if you have done some kind of literature search.
