The Writing Centre is open to new students and advanced writers.
Individualized writing consultation supports you in every phase of your writing project. It starts with questions about your current project, your past writing experience and your specific concerns. It usually lasts 30-60 minutes.
The Writing Consultation Service is intended to help you overcome writing difficulties and develop your writing skills. It does not include a correction service.
You can register for a conversation via StudOn > Angebote > Zentrale Einrichtungen > GOS > Schreibberatung für ein Gespräch anmelden. If you would like to have feedback on your text, please send one or two pages of your work, as well as the title and outline, in advance to:
If you have any questions after the consultation, please feel free to make an appointment for further consultation.
Courses and other events
You can find out how to get started in academic writing in our “Basic Course for Scientific Work” as well as in our new seminar “How do I compose a paper in the natural sciences?” If you have already gained some writing experience, you can further develop your writing skills in the seminar “Immerse yourself in the flow of writing”.

The GOS Schreibwerkstatt takes place during the semester break. Here you have the opportunity to advance your writing projects, exchange ideas with others and get the support of a writing consultant. The writing workshop begins every morning with a workshop, for example on structuring seminar papers, managing writing time or to overcoming writer’s block.
You can visit the writing workshop for a few hours or work there all day long.
Further information about the GOS Schreibwerkstatt can be found at UnivIS. Registration is not necessary.
The biggest writing event of the academic year at FAU is the Long Night of Postponed Papers, which takes place in the main library in March.
Here you can take advantage of a wide range of workshops and consulting services. Information about the Long Night, in which the GOS also participates, can be found on the website of the University Library.
