Writing support

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. We can discuss your writing approach, any questions you may have and help you to set up a plan for further development. Please note that we offer writing support but will not correct or revise complete papers.

Please fill in our consultation form or contact us via email to arrange an appointment.

Each consultation takes about 45 minutes, the number of sessions is not limited since we can support you throughout the whole writing process. 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. Please note that we offer writing support but will not correct or revise complete papers.

We will…

  • … keep the consultations confidential.
  • … listen closely to your needs when you are visiting the consultation and be honest.
  • … support autonomous and independent handling of the texts by referring to helpful material.

We will and can NOT…

  • … edit or proofread (more than an excerpt). However, we will discuss language-related issues and provide helpful strategies for the writing process.
  • … offer predictions about the grade of the written work.
  • … alter or produce content.
  • … be involved in last-minute corrections.

We expect you to…

  • … take responsibility for your text, and not delegate that to us.
  • … respect our time and work by coming prepared and keeping agreed arrangements.

The language center of the University of Vechta is a member of Gesellschaft für Schreibdidaktik und Schreibforschung (gefsus).
