The Postgrad Push-through

The Postgrad Push-Through is a weeklong writing retreat specifically designed to address the needs of PhD and MA students coming to the end of their thesis/dissertation write-up. Taking place Monday 21st - Friday 25th June, this mid-summer virtual retreat offers a chance for students to meet, interact, and work with their peers to push through the final deadline slump.

This five-day event involves writing time blocks to encourage accountability, five guest speakers who will discuss motivational and practical tools for project completion, together with ample opportunities for students to meet their peers. The Postgrad Push-Through offers not only accountability but also motivation and community to help students enjoy the last few months of their postgrad experience.
