How to Write a Winning Proposal in Just 1 Week (19-23 Jun ’17)

A short course for Masters and PhD postgraduates working towards submitting their research proposals.

The goal of the Proposal Writing Week is to provide you with a productive environment for completing your proposal. Although most of your time will be spent working alone. You will receive short presentations and individual coaching on what you are writing and information on resources as well as access to reference management software.

Join us for a week from 09:00 – 16:30 during which you will be provided with a quiet space to write, assistance from writing and statistics coaches, and refreshments.

As a prerequisite for attendance to this retreat you need to submit your reference list as proof that you have already done a literature review. See the attached poster.

Please book online using your student portal with your UWC email address.  Should you have any challenges in securing your online booking then please send an email to:
