Location: Anglistisches Seminar, Kettengasse 12
Target group: International students with a good level of English language knowledge/in English-taught programmes


Academic writing poses major challenges to students. How do I start? How do I need to formally structure my assignments? And what do the instructors expect? This task becomes even more daunting if you are supposed to do it in a foreign language.

 

The tutorial offers a compact overview of the most important elements of academic writing and familiarises students with the main skills needed for planning and completing an assignment:

  • Efficient structuring of information
  • Formal aspects of a paper
  • Banishing writer’s block
  • English as academic language
  • English language use in a term paper

The course instructor offers individual writing consultations for participants who have passed the tutorial successfully.

The workshop is free of charge, but the number of participants is limited. Registration is mandatory and should be submitted as early as possible. If you wish to take part in the course, please write an e-mail to info33i@zuv.uni-heidelberg.de.
