Presenting your work is an important channel for the exchange of information between researchers.

Methods of Teaching, Learning & Assessment

Presentation

the practice of showing and explaining the content of a topic to an audience or learner

You will probably be asked to present your work to your tutor and/or fellow students during your postgraduate study at Exeter. Visual aids are often used in giving presentations, using Microsoft PowerPoint, film footage, posters and so on.

At Exeter we believe that presenting your work is an important channel for the exchange of information between researchers and is excellent preparation for those of you wishing to go on to carry out further research as you will necessarily be taking part in conferences throughout your career.

For example, for the Designing and Communicating Research module, which is a mandatory part of the MSc, MPhil/PhD and 4 Year PhD programmes, you will be required, for example, to present a paper on your research at the Annual Student Research Conference held on the St Luke's Campus in May every year. Each conference presentation also includes a session of questions from the audience.
