Academic Support


Each semester IES Abroad Berlin offers the following workshops to help students adapt to the German classroom environment:

  • "Vorlesung-Seminar-Leistungsnachweis? Erfolgreich studieren von Anfang an"  with Dr. Reinhardt Isensee, Dept. English and American Studies, Humboldt University Berlin
  • Wissenschaftliches Schreiben 
    The structure of a German term paper is very different from the American essay type paper. This workshop offers advice and helpful suggestions on: finding a project/ research topic /scientific question; time management and formal requirements for term papers.

Writing Tutors

Writing tutors are available for consultation throughout the semester. Information will be provided in Moodle.
