HKU helps with thesis-writing
Writing your college thesis can be one of the most difficult tasks in your university experience, making it a daunting challenge that weighs heavily on students in their final semester.
In response to this, members of the Psychology Society from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) have organised a "thesis-sharing" session, during which senior members can plan and discuss their final projects with the help of their peers.
Professor Terry Au will also be on hand to discuss what examiners are looking for in terms of the scope and content. July 4, 7-10pm. CYM 302, HKU. Visit http://on.fb.me/kMoSkt for sign-up details.
