You will bring with you a 5 minute presentation on your research. In the supportive environment of the face-to-face workshop, you will deliver your 5 minute talk to rest of the group. Later in the day you will receive 25 minutes 1-2-1 coaching with the trainer to work on one or more specific aspects of presenting, linked to the pre course material and the feedback you receive from the group.


So, you’ve got an important presentation coming up and you want make the right impression.

Whether you’re new to presenting, looking to speak at your first conference, or wanting important tips to finesse your delivery or presenting to a wider audience, this is the course for you.

The course is in two parts:

The pre-workshop information covers: how to prepare an effective presentation: the essential questions that guide all good talks; different, appropriate methods to structure it; tips for making the most of powerpoint; ways to overcome nerves and present with confidence. As you go, you will apply this learning to create a 5 minute presentation.

In the supportive environment of the face-to-face workshop, you will deliver your 5 minute talk to a group of 10 people in the first session. Then in the second session you will receive 25 minutes 1-2-1 coaching with the trainer to work on one or more specific aspects of presenting, linked to the pre course material and the feedback you receive from the group.

RDC sessions play a crucial role in helping graduate students develop the skills they need to successfully complete their PhD and prepare them for their future careers. These sessions are a vital opportunity for students to learn about the research of others in related fields and thus gain an awareness of the activities in their own research group and the wider Department. They also play a critical role in improving the students’ ability to write and present their research in English which is essential to success at their first year assessment.

All first year students in Div D are expected to participate in all sessions, unless they are attending an RDC run by another division in agreement with their supervisor. Attendance for each session will be logged and recorded as part of students’ individual training records
