Are you writing your BA or MA thesis in English? Are you preparing a seminar paper or journal article in English? Are you feeling stuck in the writing process and getting discouraged? Are you unsure of the correct conventions used in academic English? Come to the Language Clinic with any problems or questions you may have regarding these issues! We can give you feedback on everything from grammar and language use to organizational skills and minor issues, such citing sources and as punctuation. Please bring a sample of your writing (up to four pages) and your questions to the clinic so that our instructors can give you individual feedback and help get you back on track!

Students will

  • learn how to write academic texts according to the needs of their disciplines

It is also open to students who are applying for a research grant through a funding organization where English is the required language for submission.
