Writing advice - because you can learn to write

Would you like to write your thesis efficiently and with pleasure? Do you want to professionalise your work strategies? Do you have any questions or just do not know what to do?

Our professional writing advice concentrates on your individual writing process and the structure of your text. In a personal consultation, you have the opportunity to ask your questions in peace and to get a text feedback that is independent of evaluation.

The goal of the consultation is to reduce eventual shortcomings and build up your resources. Targeted writing techniques and methods help you create a writing program that is specially tailored to your questions.

The consultation is free of charge and is aimed at students of all faculties.
