Advanced Presentation Skills (Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences)

Thu 5 Dec 2019


Presenting is a crucial skill for researchers, yet it is often something that even experienced scholars struggle with. This interactive workshop is designed for people who already have some experience of presenting and the basic principles involved, but would like to develop their skills in this area to a higher level.

This workshop provides the opportunity for practical experience of presenting within a supportive environment. During the workshop, you will be given time to design and deliver a short (5-10 minutes) presentation to a small audience comprised of your fellow researchers.

This course is designed for students with some presentation experience. It is possible to attend this course as an individual workshop, although we would recommend that you try to attend the series starting with the Basic Presentation Skills course.

Target audience

PhD Students in Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences
Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available here.


If you have a specific presentation that you are currently working on (e.g. for a forthcoming conference), then you can use the session to practice for it. Alternatively, if you are looking to gain some general practice, we will help you to develop a presentation on the day based on your own research.
