"As an International student you may find the style of learning and teaching at Bielefeld University in some ways different to what you might be used to from other universities in other countries. Difference can be both challenging and exciting.
This 2-day workshop is intended for students wishing to further develop their academic skills, improve their understanding of academic culture and explore ways of communicating effectively during their studies at Bielefeld University.

We will also deal with topics such as communication with lecturers, supervisors and staff and spend time looking into our own working styles. Based on your own background and experience, we will cover these and similar issues in an informative, supportive and enjoyable way, giving everyone a chance to participate.
