English for Research Purposes (english+)

Die Graduiertenakademie bietet in seinem Bereich english+ ein umfangreiches Programm zu allen Bereichen der englischsprachigen Wissenschaftskommunikation an. Dies umfasst neben einem Workshop-Programm zu sprachlichen Grundlagen des Wissenschaftsenglisch auch verschiedene Angebote z.B. zum wissenschaftlichen Schreiben und Publizieren, zum Vortragen auf internationalen Konferenzen, zur Präsentation von Postern und zur mündlichen Kommunikation sowie zum Networking. Alle Workshops werden auf Englisch angeboten, richten sich aber primär an Nicht-Muttersprachler/innen.
