What is a Thesis Group?

Thesis Groups are for students who are writing heir thesis and who wants to talk to other students and a supervisor

You can sign up for the General Study Counseling's free Thesis Group. In the group you will meet other thesis students and you will be presented with professional inputs and tips for the thesis process.
The group is led by two experienced study counselors who are used to talking to students who write a thesis and are therefore familiar with the problems that may arise during a thesis process. You will also have the opportunity to meet a number of relevant professionals from the SDU staff who provide good input.
In the group there is also room for you to share your experiences of writing thesis with others in the same situation.

What happens at a meeting in the group?

You will get knowledge about the thesis process, thesis content and there is tea and coffee

Each meeting has a unique theme that corresponds to a problem that is relevant to where you are in your thesis process.
We make sure that there is tea and coffee as well as some delights every time, and you will receive specially designed educational material for the course.

A special Facebook group

Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to become part of a closed Facebook group where you and the other participants can exchange experiences and tips and tricks.

When does the group meet?

We meet six times

The six meetings are spread throughout the semester, typically every 2-3 weeks. We cannot give fixed dates as several special groups are held. Since we need to have an overview of all the participants, you will get information on what dates your Thesis Group will meet when the enrollment is exceeded. We will call you up and make arrangements if you sign up for the group.
It is important that you can make a commitment to attend the days your group meets. It is agreed upon when you are called.
How do I sign up for the group?

You sign up by completing our survey

We do not have Thesis groups in English in the fall semester 2020. There will be Thesis groups in English again in the spring semester 2021 and you can sign up via a survey on this webpage.
