Academic Lab Joins the Writing Lab in February and March 2021


In the online Writing Lab, students can focus on writing their term paper or thesis in a calm atmosphere. The Academic Lab provides professional tips for your workflow just in time for the exam period.

The exams will soon be starting and the deadline for writing a term paper is approaching?

If you cannot seem to get yourself to prepare for seminars or to write a term paper or your thesis, our writing lab might be just the right place for you. The offer is provided by our Psychosocial Counselling Service and currently takes place every Friday as a web-based event from 10.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.

On the following dates, the Academic Lab of the University of Leipzig will also be present and share their professional advice:

  • Friday, 12 February 2021
  • Friday, 26 February 2021
  • Friday, 19 March 2021

Contents and goals

The Writing Lab offers a (virtual) coworking space where students can address their tasks together with others. Firstly, you can reflect on your individual work behaviour and possible difficulties. Later the participants have free working time at their disposal.

Nicole Mackus from the Academic Lab will answer questions about academic writing (e.g. on the use of sources and citations) and advise you on how to deal with writer's block, procrastination, realistic time management and similar issues. You will also have the possibility to discuss specific issues in short individual consultations in breakout rooms. 

  • Reflecting on your own work behaviour
  • Identifying difficulties and finding suitable strategies for overcoming them
  • Finding a start into the work process and use our long-term support if needed
  • Planning your time and defining your tasks (on a weekly basis)
  • Mutual assistance
