Dissertation and Thesis Clinics in July and August

By Jasmin E Mullings, on 28 June 2021

Neon sign which reads "Develop your Digital Skills"Need help with your dissertation or thesis?

We are running six weekly dissertation and thesis clinics throughout July and August. There is no need to book, just turn up. Staff can help with formatting your dissertation, using statistical software and bibliographic referencing using Word, LaTeX, SPSS, R, NatBib, Endnote, Mendeley and Zotero.


The clinics will take place on the following dates/times:

Wednesday 7th July from 14:00-16:00
Tuesday 13th July from 10:00-12:00
Tuesday 20th July from 14:00-16:00
Wednesday 28th July from 10:00-12:00
Thursday 5th August from 10:00-12:00 (note that support with statistical software will not be available on this date)
Tuesday 10th August from 14:00-16:00

What to expect

Staff are able to help with a wide range of software but we can’t promise that we will be able to answer every question and support is on a ‘best efforts’ basis. We can respond to specific queries or guide you as to which software to use but we can’t provide individual training in how to use the software.  If you need training you will be directed to self-paced materials or scheduled courses.  Please note that our usual Drop in terms and conditions apply so please check these for full details.

How to access

Our clinics will be held remotely via Moodle using Blackboard Collaborate. To access to the Blackboard Collaborate session, please enrol on our ISD Digital Skills Development Moodle course and visit the ‘Dissertation and Thesis Clinics – July/August 2021’ section.

Additional resources

Library Services have developed a useful guide to resources and support for undertaking dissertations or research projects which covers all stages of the research process.
