Yussef al Tamimi

Are you experiencing difficulties writing your Master’s Thesis? Or are you in search of a subject and wondering how to start the process of writing? Yussef al Tamimi will enrich your knowledge on this matter during a workshop aimed at students of the Faculty of Law on Tuesday 4 April. This workshop will be given in Dutch. You will gain insight on grammar, writing, doing research and planning. If there is anything else on this matter you would like to learn, please let Yussef know.

Annie Wong
Annie Wong will present her knowledge on writing a Master’s Thesis especially for those who use a quantitative research approach. The workshop, in particular intended for students of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, will take place on Wednesday 5 April. It covers both matters of content (e.g. what should be written in an introduction and conclusion) to more practical matters (e.g. how to structure paragraphs).

In addition to the workshops, Danielle Bovenberg (winning Master’s Thesis of the Faculty of Social Sciences) will arrange walk-in hours in which you can visit her for any question on writing your Master’s Thesis. Data and locations of these walk-in hours will be announced during the workshops.
