What can The Study Lab do for you?

Academic Writing

Are you writing a paper? The Study Lab is available for all students at UiS. Book an appointment or drop in!

You get help with:

- understanding thesis formulations - understanding  academic genres - getting started - defining the thesis statement - limiting the thesis - developing an outline - revising a draft - structuring and managing your text - phrasing - writing an abstract - source criticism - how to cite sources

What we can’t do for you:

- proofreading/linguistic choices - editing - professional supervising (guidance) - consider level on thesis

Remember: Your supervisor’s advice always comes first!

Individual guidance

The Study Lab offers dialogue based guidance in academic writing. The guidance is given by student mentors. We offer two kinds of guidance: Drop in guidance for 20 minutes and booked appointments for up to 40 minutes. During busy hours we may not be able to help everyone who drops in. Make an appointment in advance to ensure that you get help.

Your responsibility:

Bring your thesis statement to the session. If you have booked an appointment, the thesis statement should be sent to the mentor at least one day ahead of the appointment.

Please remember:

- bring your thesis statement - bring your notes, ideas and drafts - bring a notebook or a laptop - consider what you want to work with
