Thesis Bootcamp

We run two Thesis Bootcamps each year in March and October

This intensive writing weekend is designed for doctoral candidates who are in the final stages of their thesis. It offers an opportunity for candidates to write productively in a supportive, distraction-free environment, starting on the Friday evening and continuing all day Saturday and Sunday.

Thesis Bootcamps are offered twice a year.


Places at Bootcamp are limited. To apply, you must be enrolled in a doctoral degree at Victoria University of Wellington and not have participated in Bootcamp before. Applicants need to commit to completing the preparatory tasks and attending all sessions. All doctoral candidates will be advised when applications open for each Bootcamp.

The Thesis Bootcamps dates for this year are:

  • 13–15 March 2020
  • 2–4 October 2020

Applications for the October Thesis Bootcamp will be available later in 2020, closer to the time of the Bootcamp.
