Services for Instructors
Also for you as instructors of Bayreuth University we offer several services.
First of all, we are happy to advise you on questions concerning the design of writing exercises and concerning the supervision of seminar papers, theses (BA and MA), and dissertations. We can also support you when it comes to your habilitations or dissertations or any other writing projects.
Additionally, we individually support you in your writing projects throughout the year. Especially during the semester break we are present at the Writing Center in order to be there for you during times where you can focus on your writing. Come and see us in all stages of the writing process, i.e. when it comes to finding or narrowing down a topic, the structure of a writing project, the writing itself or the editing. Consultations are free of charge for instructors of all faculties of Bayreuth University.
Regarding your lectures and seminars, we are furthermore happy to prepare a session concerning academic writing for your students.
For more information on these aspects see our FAQ below. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
