Academic presentations

In this video students share their own experiences of preparing and giving a presentation at university.

It’s quite common for students to be required to give an oral presentation during their university studies. This may involve speaking to a small seminar class or to a larger group, depending on the course and the level of study.

Presentations may also be delivered online to your teachers and/or fellow students and classmates. In some contexts online presentations may be live, but in others they may be recorded and assessed asynchronously.

In this video, students, Dandan, Junyim, Gloria and Ran, share their own experiences of preparing and giving a presentation at university.

We’d like to hear if you’ve had to give a presentation in front of a group of people in your country.

  • If so, what was it about?

  • Did you speak in English or in your own language?

  • How would you feel about doing the same presentation in English?
