Are you struggling with the requirements of a scientific text? Are you wondering how to start or how to best write an outline? And what is an introduction?

We are here to help. Come and join our workshop. Together we will discuss the basic principles of fine academic writing. You will get to know the conventional rules about the content and organization of a scientific manuscript. You will learn how to effictively revise your first draft. And we will review the elements of a clear and concise scientific style. You can talk to other students about their writing experiences and personal tricks. We look forward to any questions and give you tips on how to handle times of crisis.
