Student information

Wageningen Writing Lab

Writing Lab offers a series of supporting activities for students of Wageningen University to help them improve their writing skills and develop new writing strategies.

Wageningen Writing Lab: Practical help in times of distance education

Due to the current situation, all students have to study at home. At home, however, you are much dependent on yourself and therefore it can be more difficult to continue studying and working effectively. Therefor Wageningen Writing Lab offers guided digital help.

If you are interested in one of our activities, send a mail to info.wageningenwritinglab@wur.nl

Our activities:

*Digital Study Working Groups

If you miss going to the library, or the support of fellow students while working on your own task, you can join a group of (4-5) students that have similar needs. In the group you work in a structured and well planned way. A student coach is available for help. This group work will be available during the remaining weeks of the academic year.

*Online Individual Writing Tutoring

Discussing your text and your writing process is a very helpful way to keep motivated, but also your writing will be improved. The Writing Lab tutors are trained to support you in this.

*Online Summer Writing Weeks

Is summer holiday starting, but you do still have to finish your writing? Join the Summer Writing Weeks! You work on a daily schedule, starting with a planning for the week and each day, experiencing support from other writing members and enjoying short instructions about important aspects of the writing process when needed. A writing tutor is available all week.
