How to Write Papers

Students are required to write a PhD proposal within two years of starting their PhD proposal.

This document gives some notion regarding the content and length of the proposal (pdf). An example proposal from a student of mine who completed a PhD in Geography is found here.

A Word Document template for writing term papers, a proposal or a dissertation is found here. Consider using Grammarly or something similar to help with your writing. It is free!

Finally, given the complicated nature of graduate studies in today’s world, PhD students are encouraged to look at the following reference book:
Mastering your PhD: Survival and Success in the Doctoral Years and Beyond. 2nd Edition by Patricia Gosling and Bart Noordam. (Springer 2011)
