Writing Centre English

The Language Centre offers writing centres for both German and English, including workshops and individual coaching sessions. The aim of the workshops and individual coaching sessions is to teach fundamental writing techniques and to support students who have specific problems in writing term papers or final theses. The Writing Centre English is a service offered to all students in all departments.

The Writing Centre’s walk-in coaching hours take place on Thursdays from 10:00 to 12:00 at Campus Sankt Augustin (Room A102.2). Feel free to come by with any questions you may have on writing in English!
In Rheinbach, the walk-in coaching hours take place on Wednesdays from 11:30 to 13:30 in the library.
