Peer Writing Consultation "Studentische Schreibberatung" - From peers to peers

Welcome to the website of our peer writing tutors! We will help you with all matters concerned with academic writing. Our consultation hours take place during the lecture period as well as during the semester break.

Our consultations are action-oriented, person-oriented and process-oriented. In principle, you can come to us with all questions about academic work and writing.

In addition, the text should not exceed three to four pages.
