If you would like to talk about your writing project make an appointment (see the booking tool below)  or send an e-mail to schreibberatunguni-potsdamde! 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. However, if you are an international M.A. student at the Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Human Sciences you may prefer to contact your disciplinary writing tutor.

Please note: If you want to send us material prior to your appointment limit the text to a maximum of three pages (at least three days in advance). Please be aware that longer texts or text sent at short notice cannot be accepted!
