“I’ve been thinking about designing a t-shirt with the text: ‘Don’t ask me about my thesis!”

Updated: Sep 1, 2023

Do you ever wonder how you will get enough time and energy to finish that huge writing project? Or are you nearly finished with your compilation thesis and now writing that crucial summarising chapter you’ve been putting off for weeks?

You’re not alone. Many of us experience academic life and academic writing as sometimes stressful and frustrating when we know (or heard) that it can be “rewarding.” Be assured there are proven strategies and tools to shift from writer’s block to writer’s flow. There are ways to shift from vague visions to concrete and tangible goals and build a sustainable work habit that works in the long run.

Finish on Time has provided workshops designed for Ph.D. students and other academic staff for over 13 years. Thousands of participants from all academic disciplines have given us excellent reviews over the years. For one thing, the participants appreciate that we understand academia and the academic work environment.
