Centre for Writing Competence


The Writing Centre was established in 2007 and has ever since been a reference point when it comes to research and writing in an academic context at the University of Cologne. As part of the Dean's Ooffice, we offer a great variety of services: singular as well as regular peer-coaching, compact seminars and cooperative teaching on methods and techniques of writing in an academic context. We also offer a trainee programme for students interested in becoming writing coaches themselves.

In addition to these various services, an ongoing topic of research at our Centre focuses on the linguistic and psychological aspects of the writing process.
