Review Verena Nüchter

Experience with the Leuphana Schreibzentrum/Writing Center

Bachelor Thesis? Master? Future? During my last semester I had the feeling of standing in front of a huge invisible mountain. Therefore, my first way led me to the writing centre. I soon wondered why I hadn't been here before I started my very first term paper. In addition to the individual writing consultation, “Time to Write” inspired me. Through the weekly routine, the co-working with the pomodoro method and the exchange with fellow students, I quickly made progress in my writing process.

But not only my bachelor thesis took shape, so did also the plans for my further studies. I had decided to take part in various Master programmes on resilience and climate adaptation in Stockholm and Lund. For each application I needed an individual letter of motivation and a CV. In search of reliable information on translation issues, I made an appointment with the English writing consultation this time. But it was much more than just answering my questions. During four intensive and very productive hours of consultation, I specified my applications. Veronica gave me valuable tips and the necessary drive to perfect each answer.

Thanks to the Writing Center, I not only have a good Bachelor thesis and two successful applications on my desk, but also gained confidence in dealing with new writing projects.
