C@MPUS - SQ: Academic Writing à la carte

Are you studying or doing your doctorate and looking for courses on specific topics of academic writing? Then visit our mini-courses! Here you will learn how to take the different steps from the first idea to the finished text.

You can enroll in our mini-course offerings without fulfilling the SQ requirement. If there is a specific topic in the area  of academic writing in English that you are interested in or want to improve , just sign up for one or more mini-courses.

These mini-course offerings are intended for students who would like to begin to write or to develop their existing writing skills further, but according to their individual needs rather than in the traditional and semester-long course model. The approximate workload for one mini course is 3 hours (WebEx session + working on online materials + final assignments).
