Help with writing & Learning

The Writing Lab of HWG Ludwigshafen offers numerous services related to studying and scientific work, both in the form of consultations and in workshops or online self-study formats.
The offers are open to all students of the HWG Ludwigshafen.

If you need assistance with scientific work, writing or learning, you can make a consultation appointment by e-mail.

Possible topics may include:

  • Timing
  • Study stress/exam anxiety
  • Outline of a written paper
  • Questions about citation
  • Formulation questions
  • Reading comprehension of scientific texts          

 All consultations, whether face-to-face or online, are confidential.

The goal of a writing group is to make writing less lonely, to establish fixed writing times, and to create space for exchange about writing. Therefore, the Writing Lab of HWG Ludwigshafen organizes a writing group every semester, in which between 3 and 10 people can participate who are currently writing a term paper or thesis. In approximately two-hour meetings, held online or on-site as needed, goals are set, writing is done together, and questions are clarified at the end, feedback is given, and goal achievement is reviewed.

The Writing Lab also supports groups of students who want to start a writing group.

If you are interested in participating in a writing group or starting a writing group yourself, you can contact the Writing Lab at HWG Ludwigshafen by email.

Each semester, the departments of study and education offer a series of workshops related to scientific work and learning.

The workshops for the winter semester 2023/2024 will be announced here in due time.

If you have any questions about the workshop offerings, we welcome your email.
