Aim and content
This is a generic course. This means that the course is reserved for PhD students at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH. Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at the Graduate School, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. After the enrolment deadline, available seats will be allocated to the waiting list.

The course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD students at graduate schools in the other Nordic countries. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1. Understand how to present own research in a clear and concise fashion

2. Avoid most common presentation mistakes

3. Prioritise results and data to best fit the allotted time of an oral presentation or the space of a poster

4. Be introduced to basic presentation techniques

5. Optimize your figures, images and animations

PhD students are expected to be able to present their own research and the research of others in a clear and understandable manner. Good presentation skills will benefit the researcher when teaching, presenting at scientific meetings, during an examination, or as a part of a job interview.

The course will focus on giving the student hands on experience with all stages of making a presentation.

The PhD course is intended for all students who would like to improve their presentation skills.

Students are required to bring data or topics from own research areas that they want to work with during the course.

The course is relevant to PhD students from the following graduate programmes at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences, UCPH:

All graduate programmes


The course will feature introductory lectures, but will focus on facilitated workshops, where students will work with their own projects under supervision, and will be evaluated by fellow students
