Thesis Support Group

Do you miss the casual chit-chat with your friends and fellow students while grabbing a coffee or tea between seminars? The chance to get a new perspective on your research topic, the  unexpected hint about a helpful database or the hallway talk? Do you also have a million questions and decisions to make – about your choice of supervision, how to overcome your writer‘s block, or just how to delete that stupid line in Word? Or do you just want to share something about your thinking or writing process?

If any of this sounds familiar, then you’ll find what you‘re looking for in the Theses Café of the Schreibzentrum / Writing Center! We’ll get together in small groups to present the current state of our work and to receive informal feedback from fellow students. There will be a guiding topic for each session, but all questions and concerns are welcome at any time!

We‘re looking forward to meeting you at any time!
