English Presentation & Performance

Do you need more experience with presenting ideas or giving talks in an academic context? Are you looking to improve the delivery and impact of your talks in English during your studies? This course enables students to speak more effectively in public situations at university. This course will be “hands-on” by offering input on what makes presentations work and providing opportunities to prepare, deliver and receive feedback on individual talks.

Classes take place on the campus of Wageningen University & Research, in the Forum building.

Target group

English Presentation & Performance is for Bachelor’s and Master’s students looking to improve and practice their oral presentation skills.

Course content

The sessions will focus on preparing and delivering talks in an academic context.
