Are you going on a DAAD, Erasmus, or other study abroad program? And do you need to submit a letter of motivation as part of your application? If so, this workshop is for you. We will start by looking at the structure and guidelines for letters of motivation. Then we will do brainstorming and create an outline. Particular attention will be paid to the organization of information and effective paragraphing. Students will write their first draft or revise an existing draft and receive feedback from both peers and the instructor. Emphasis will be placed on features of English that make your writing sound more natural such as word order, register, and transitions. Individual follow-up and consultation will be provided at the Language Clinic.

Bachelor’s and master’s students

Students will

  • become familiar with the structure and content of letters of motivation;
  • improve their ability to plan and write a finished letter of motivation; and
  • practice academic writing skills necessary for producing a formal letter.
