The offer of individual counseling is exclusively directed to students of the University of Potsdam; primarily BA and MA students!

PhD and Postdocs please contact the PoGS.

Not booked places of other offers (workshops or Writing Night) will be given to students of other universities (on request) or PhD students of the UP.

If you would like to talk about your writing project send an e-mail to schreibberatunguni-potsdamde and make an appointment! A trained writing tutorwill work together with you on your writing project - either face-to-face or via Zoom.

We can help you with your term paper, your thesis, a portfolio, or even an application form. Feel free to get in touch at any stage of your writing process. Our trained writing tutors will help you to understand your writing type, explain the writing process, and provide feedback on your text. You decide how often you want to meet.

We enjoy helping students from different disciplines and all study programmes. If you are an international M.A. student at the Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Human Sciences you may also contact your disciplinary writing tutor.

Please remember your fellow students!

In the event of repeated uncooperative behavior towards other students by blocking numerous appointments and/or by failing to show up for individual advising appointments without timely cancellation or apology, the Writing Assistance reserves the right to temporarily exclude the person in question from counseling.
