Research and Writing Lab

Aca­de­mic work encom­pas­ses a broad ran­ge of are­as. It begins with lis­ten­ing and rea­ding com­pre­hen­si­on and the voca­bu­la­ry invol­ved and extends to an idea or rather a pre­cise­ly for­mu­la­ted ques­ti­on that ser­ves as the basis for the text struc­tu­re. Argu­men­ta­ti­ve logic, sty­listics, cita­ti­ons, lay­out, and for­mat­ting gui­de­li­nes are also important ele­ments. Suc­cess­ful pre­sen­ta­ti­ons, high-qua­li­ty pos­ters, and well-craf­ted essay exams are based on aca­de­mic rese­arch and wri­ting skills. The Rese­arch and Wri­ting Lab sup­ports stu­dents in all disci­pli­nes at Leip­zig Uni­ver­si­ty. Work­shops, online offe­rings, and rese­arch and wri­ting con­sul­ta­ti­ons are offe­red to help stu­dents suc­cess­ful­ly meet the chal­len­ges of aca­de­mic work.


The Rese­arch and Wri­ting Lab offers an extra­cur­ri­cu­lar work­shop series. Par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on is free of char­ge. An over­view of all of the work­shops offe­red by this sub­pro­ject can be found here. You may regis­ter for work­shops direc­t­ly on our web­site. Regis­tra­ti­on is bin­ding.
