Writing a final thesis is a big investment. You will likely put hundreds of hours and lots of effort in your final thesis. What if you could use this opportunity for something more than just getting your degree? What if you could use it to learn about or even work on the most important and pressing problems our world faces? Make your thesis meaningful by using it to explore ways to significantly improve the world.
There are many problems in the world, and we can't solve all of them due to our limited resources. Differences between the importance of problems are huge. Therefore, we should focus on the most important problems first. Good criteria for comparing problems are scale, neglectedness and solvability. Our coaches have spent a lot of time thinking about what the most important problems are. They will help you identify such problems and find the right way to approach it from your study discipline. Make your thesis meaningful by focusing it on the most important and pressing problems.
Apply for coaching via the form below. After you apply for our coaching, we will review your application and potentially invite you for an online interview. We are looking for people ready to put extra effort into figuring out how they can contribute to improving the world and make their research exceptional. If you get accepted, we will find a coach who will be a good fit for you. The coach will help you to identify the most important problems and ways to tackle them with your thesis.
If you decide to choose a topic that the coach suggested, we will try to connect you with external researchers or organisations working on the same problem. We will not help you with thesis writing but will give you access to our supportive community where you can ask for help and share your experience with other students driven by a goal of creating research with a high positive impact on the world.
After you finish your thesis, we will support you in publishing it and showing it out. This service is free - we only want to direct students to the most important problems and support research into these problems.
The best time to apply for our coaching is when you are not yet committed to any topic and have some time for exploration of ideas that may arise in the coaching. That might usually mean applying about 6 months before you have to start working on your thesis or submit PhD applications, but some people might be able to explore ideas and get oriented faster. Applying earlier than that is usually not that useful because some of your circumstances may change and you also might be less likely to put concentrated effort into exploring ideas from coaching if you are too far from starting writing your thesis. When we have a lot of applications, we give priority to people deciding what to focus on in their PhD programmes/applications.
