Semester Events ProgrammeAcademic Writing - English-Spoken Offer


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 familiarizes students with the main skills needed for planning and completing an assignment in English:

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

Please Note

This workshop is in English. However, a corresponding German-language tutorial is also offered.
