…yes today I am starting the practical training for my master thesis in a company in Stockholm. I will be here for several weeks to learn the methods in the lab and then I will move back to Linköping to implement and use the technique there. I am very excited as my project sounds quite promising and also because it is my last semester as a student. But what comes next no one knows, which is a bit scary as well. At the beginning I my aim is to work in industry I think, to get time to think about a possible PhD position. But first there will be the master thesis to do and it will be as usual tuff times that are waiting for me. A project in the lab is never working as it should and one is followed by ups and downs constantly during such a big project but I am really motivated to face that challenge. And I know that I am not alone in that situation as at least 30 more people (my fellow students) are starting there projects as well. And it was really nice to see that we are also not the only ones because as the international community is big and quite good connected here in Sweden, I came across a blog of an international student from a different university, who also starts her master thesis the 21st January. Macy summarized her top 5 of things to do to get prepared for the master thesis and to survive during the 6 months. I found her advice very helpful and from my experiences with my first-year project I can agree that those 5 things are the most important ones. I found it quite funny to read from a person I don’t even know how she is preparing for this next step in her life and therefore I thought that I am sharing her link with all of you so you can read about her as well as my top 5 advices for how to be successful during thesis writing.
Good luck to Macy and all the others who are sitting in the same boat!
