Thesis Boot Camp

Thesis Boot Camp: September 7th to 11th, 2020

Writing a final thesis can pose great challenges for students. In addition to time management challenges, the writing process in particular raises many questions: How do I limit my topic? How do I conduct targeted research? What is the best way to approach the writing process? And how do I manage my sources? Answers to these basic questions will be found in the course of the Thesis boot camp.


The upcoming Thesis Boot Camp (September 7-11, 2020) will take place in virtual form due to the current Covid-19 situation.

Twice a year, once in spring and once in autumn, the Leuphana Professional School organises a Master's thesis week in which everything revolves around planning and writing the Master's thesis. Students from different study programmes tackle this task together, with the team of the Professional School providing the best possible support. A supporting programme structures is the Master's thesis boot camp, which offers the opportunity to take your time for the writing process and deal with individual needs. Even after the end of the supporting programme, students can of course continue to work in the library on campus.

The Bachelor’s and Master’s Thesis Boot Camp offers a good structure and defined time windows to devote to his writing project. Some of the information, for example tips and tricks for literature research, I could have used right from the start of my studies.

I can only confirm the experiences of my fellow students at the Bachelor & Master's Thesis Bootcamp: The graduation week is worthwhile at any time. It helps in finding topics as well as in the further text production.

The offer of the final thesis week and the contents presented therein are very helpful for me in the course of working on my master thesis topic. In particular, the contents on the topic of literature research and the functioning of search engines were very helpful, as I often had problems in the past with narrowing down my research to the relevant subject areas.
In addition, the morning inputs ensure that you follow a regular daily schedule during the processing week and work on your thesis regularly at the same time. This helps me and probably also other students a lot with the time management.”
