Friday Workshops

Our Friday Workshops provide students with insights on most parts of the writing process.

This semester, we offer various workshops in English. Please note the duration and the location of the workshops!

All workshops will be held online!

The language the workshop will be held in is the language the title and description are written in.

The entire program can be found on our German website.

Participation and Registration

Participation in our workshops is completely free. The application is only valid via the application forms in the workshop descriptions. As the number of participants is limited, we follow a "first come, first served"-principle. To ensure fairness in the distribution of seats, students not participating in a workshop without prior notice will be blocked from further participation for the semester. Thank you for your understanding!

After sending the application form, you will receive an automatic confirmation about the sending process. We will inform you within a few days whether you have received a place in the workshop or have been placed on the waiting list. As it is common that students deregister from participation within the last week before the workshop, it is still probable that we will inform you about possibly participating on short notice!

Please mind the target groups for the workshops.

Registration for the workshops until June 05, 2020, will start on April 14, 2020. Please note: These will be held online!

Registration for the workshops starting June 19, 2020, will start on June 1, 2020.
