Overview

The purpose of this club is to allow you to understand and practice the various steps the doctoral thesis research proposal development would typically undergo. Ideally, this will provide you with the knowledge, experience, and skills to craft your fully-fledged submission ready proposal.

The development of a doctoral thesis research proposal is the starting point of your research. It is also a living document that will accompany you alongside your doctoral research journey.

For some, if not most programs, the doctoral thesis research proposal is the entry point. Upon enrolment in the doctoral program, it will be the initial focus to compile an operational thesis proposal for approval by the supervisors and obtain ethical clearance for the subsequent research undertaking.

But there is more to it, the doctoral thesis research proposal is outdated the moment you hand it in for approval and clearance. The reason for this is that you continue building up knowledge about your research problem and topic throughout the whole journey. Therefore, the initial doctoral thesis research proposal should be crafted in a way that allows the proposal to mature and evolve together with your research and eventually converge into your first thesis draft.

In this club we would therefore like to advance your understanding and allow you to practice the various steps that the doctoral thesis research proposal development typically would undergo. The critical elements of the initial thesis research proposal, the existing knowledge to be leveraged into it, and how to ensure the thesis research proposal is actionable and frontward compatible, to allow for a subsequent conversion into your first thesis draft.

Club Objectives

The objectives of this club are to allow you to understand and practice the various steps that the doctoral thesis research proposal development typically would undergo. With this, you should achieve the following learning outcomes:

1. Know how to build up and defend your doctoral thesis research proposal.

2. Practice the various steps that the doctoral thesis research proposal development typically undergoes.

3. Understand that the development of a doctoral thesis research proposal is the starting point of your research as much as it is also a living document that will accompany you alongside your doctoral research journey.

4. Learn about the difference of (i) the initial entry point type doctoral thesis research proposal and (ii) the operational thesis proposal for approval by the supervisors and obtain ethical clearance for the subsequent research undertaking.

5. Be aware that the doctoral thesis research proposal is outdated the moment you hand it in for approval and clearance.

6. Learn about the proposal conversion process and how it converges into your first thesis draft.

7. Understand the critical elements of the initial thesis research proposal, the existing knowledge to be leveraged into it, and how to ensure the thesis research proposal is actionable and frontward compatible so to allow for the subsequent conversion into your first thesis draft.
