Starter kit for academic working techniques

The earliest term papers take place at the end of the first semester. What are the formal requirements for term papers? How do I pick a good topic? How do I construct my argument? The following provides you with links to institutions and documents that support you in improving your writing skills.

  • The Academic Lab offers extracurricular workshops that help students learn to write academic papers more effectively. It also provides workshops focused on academic (poster) presentations, reading and studying strategies as well as special language courses for both German and international students who use German or English as academic languages. In addition, the Academic Lab offers research and writing consultations that are open to all Leipzig University students. Special counseling programs for international students are also included in the program.
