Language Coaching Programme - Fall 2019
Individual Language Coaching for Doctoral Candidates
The Individual Language Coaching, funded by the DAAD programme "STIBET", is a 45-minute one-to-one consultation with a native speaker instructor. The Language Coaching is aimed towards all doctoral candidates of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar working on their academic paper/s as non-native speakers of the English.
Registrations for the coaching sessions are on a first-come-first-serve basis and depending on availability. When registering for a coaching appointment please specify in your email:
· Name & Surname
· Title of Ph.D. thesis
· Type of the text (e.g. chapter of the dissertation, journal paper etc.) for the coaching
· Which phase of your doctorate you are currently in (beginning etc.)?
· Latest date for the submission of your work that you require coaching for
Requirements for your individual session
In preparation for your session with the coach you should prepare a short paragraph on the content of your text and your field of research. Furthermore, please clearly define how the coach can specifically help you, e.g. advice on grammar, preparation for a conference presentation, limited proofreading etc. This information will help the coach to plan the 45 minutes consultation with you.
Once you have registered by email with all the above mentioned requirements we will offer you an individual appointment with our coach.
As these are fixed slots exclusively reserved for the individual doctoral candidates, we require a written notification by email to the BRS for any cancellations (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The sessions for Fall 2019 are generally planned for Tuesdays from 4pm to 5:30 onwards and on Wednesdays from 10 to 11:30.
