Individual support in German academic writing (DAAD)


Next application deadline: 15th September 2019


For many foreign doctoral candidates who are non-native German speakers the writing of the dissertation poses a great challenge. To be able to render assistance in an early stage, GSGG offers individual writing advisory for foreign doctoral candidates. In up to 10 consultations which are being held on the basis of already existing text passages you will receive qualified support by experts. This should enable you to surmount the difficulties that are grounded in language and to receive suggestions for improving your writing style. In this early stage of your dissertation project the focus is on capacity building, meaning that you learn how to deal with writing difficulties concerning scientific texts in German in the long term in a self-reliant manner. The writing advisory is therefore not suited for the final correction of already completed texts.

Please take account of the information on the formal requirements and deadlines in the corresponding guideline (PDF-document in the right column).
