General Info

The writing lab w.space offers its courses and events primarily to TU Dortmund University undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers. Upon request, we enroll TU Dortmund University postdocs, and academic staff. We do not enroll TU Dortmund University external participants.

To register for most of the writing lab w.space events, you do not have to meet specific prerequisites. Exceptions are the writing language courses for German as a foreign language and English. A placement is required for these courses.

If you are enrolled as a student or as a doctoral candidate at TU Dortmund University, you have access to our course platform with your university ID. Log in via the SSO access and scroll on the program page to the course of your choice. You also have the option to jump directly to the writing lab events using the filter menu. At the event of your choice, click on the registration button. You will receive an automated registration confirmation.

If you are a staff member or postdoc, please register with your university ID on our course platform via the SSO access and write a short e-mail with your registration request to Dr. Meni Syrou. Your account will be manually activated, and you can register for the desired course via the registration button.

If you are a visiting scholar and do not have a university ID, please register on our course platform via the guest access and write a short e-mail with your registration request to Dr. Meni Syrou. You will then be manually registered for the desired course.

Registration for our writing courses and workshops is possible through our course platform beginning March 1, 9:00 a.m.

The writing lab w.space offers have been created mainly to support you with your academic writing and presentation projects. Under certain condition, you can earn a credit but not a grade. The only exception is our credit-bearing writing courses. If you successfully graduate from these writing courses, you will receive a grade at the end of the semester.

Please find more details in the .pdf file descriptions available on our course platform.
