S.3 Ep.1 Master Thesis Tips

Writing a thesis is no small task, so Niklas and Clay break down the process and give some suggestions on how to prepare yourself.

Our best advice is to be well prepared and organized, and know how your research process is interconnected with your writing process. This means knowing how to build a research design that is suitable to investigate your research topic and research questions, including a suitable research methodology. It also means planning for surprises, and budgeting enough time to read literature, write good notes, prepare an outline, and be able to finish a final written draft several weeks before your submission deadline.
