The Language Workshop

Free tutorials for all students and PhD students at Uppsala University

About us

The Language Workshop is free of charge and available to all students on the undergraduate and master’s levels, as well as to PhD students. We offer one-to-one tutorials in academic writing and oral presentations in both Swedish and English. The tutors at the Language Workshop have extensive experience in teaching academic writing and speech in different academic disciplines. We teach at the university and have different areas of expertise, including Swedish as a second language, English for international students, dyslexia, and academic reading strategies.

We also offer guidance to departments, faculties and other units at the university regarding the development of students’ communication training, through workshops, seminars, and lectures. We also participate in teacher training events, with seminars on topics like text feedback and how to construct clear assignment instructions.

Activities:

  • c. 1,200 tutorials per year
  • tutorials on different campuses: BMC, Ekonomikum, the English Park Campus, and the Ångström Lab
  • lectures about academic writing, oral presenations, and reading strategies for both students and teachers
