The aim of these consultation sessions is to help members of the Corvinus community (from undergrad to PhD student and lecturer level) in effectively communicating their ideas in writing in an academic setting in the English language. Participants are encouraged to bring drafts of their ongoing writing projects and they will receive expert advice on how to improve their writing in terms of structure, argumentation, style and language. We offer advice on term papers, BA and MA thesis, PhD dissertations, conference abstracts and scientific papers.
