Writing support

You are about to write your study or project thesis? Are you just starting your Bachelor's or Master's thesis? Do you need help with writing scientific texts? Then we have the right thing for you! 

The division offers its students professional, individual writing support for academic papers. The writing training is aimed at students of the subjects Sustainable Resources and Energy Supply, Mineral Resources Engineering, Sustainable Energy Supply and Environmental Engineering who already have a topic and a supervising assistant. 

Individual writing supervision (for students NREV, ROI, NEV and UIW) 

Individual writing supervision has been offered since 2007. Individual assistance in writing scientific papers is given in one-to-one meetings. Supervision is offered throughout the entire processing period, i.e. from registration to submission. The writing support is not a proofreading service, but rather an advisory service. 

Registration for individual writing support takes place via a registration form. The limited number of places will be allocated chronologically according to the date of registration. Please send the registration form to

Further information can also be found in the brochure "Additional offers for academic writing".
