Writing academic texts in a foreign language can be challenging. The difficulties can be language-related (especially when having to express complex thoughts) but can also include having to deal with different argumentative structures. The language centre offers individual writing support to students and staff in English or German and for all subjects . Contact us via Opens window for sending emailemail or our Opens internal link in current windowconsultation form. We can discuss your writing approach, any questions you may have and help you to set up a plan for further development. To ensure an ideal start it would be best if you came prepared, so send a writing sample (no more than 5 pages), a draft or just a list of questions. Each consultation takes about 45 minutes, the number of sessions is not limited since we can support you throughout the whole writing process. Please note that we offer writing support but will not correct or revise complete papers.

Peer-Writing-Tutors

Since November 2016 students can take their questions concerning academic writing in English and German to the students in our Peer-Writing-Team, who will tutor them individually. A whole range of different subjects can be tackled in the consultation sessions, for example: 

  • writer's block
  • questions related to your writing process (methods, schedules, topics, organization ...)
  • academic writing (research, citation, how to prepare questions for a meeting with your teacher e.g.)
  • your specific text (structure, central theme, wording...)
  • requirements in different academic genres
  • (job-) applications

All our Peer-Writing-Tutors have been trained in matters of general consultancy as well as in writing consultation specifically, so you can expect both: a fellow student who will listen, understand, relate to your problems (and possibly give a little insider information) and someone who has some expertise in methods and problem-solving in the field of academic writing.

You can consult our Peer-Writing- Tutors once or several times (for example alongside a project paper or Bachelor thesis), depending on how much support you think you will need.

We're looking forward to meeting you. You are welcome to contact us via email: Opens window for sending emailinfo.schreibberatung[at]uni-vechta[dot]de or our Opens internal link in current windowconsultation form
