Presentation skills for mathematics and statistics students


As students in the School of Mathematics and Statistics, you’ll be required to design and deliver a presentation at some point during your academic studies. Post-graduation, the chances are that presentation skills will be required in whatever career you choose, and the ability to know how to design and deliver effective presentations is a very valuable one to have. In collaboration with CAPOD, the Director of Teaching in the School of Mathematics and Statistics has arranged for three short sessions to be offered to undergraduates and postgraduates in the school who are enrolled on MT4599, MT5009 and MT5000.


Each session will look at the transferrable skills of presentation design and delivery, focusing on presentation purpose, audience, structure, and visual aids. During the session, undergraduates will have the chance to think about how they might best present their module project work during their assessed presentations, and masters students will be asked to consider how they might approach presenting a case study provided on the day.


Places are limited, and are first-come, first-served, and there is a choice of three sessions running on the 7, 9 and 10 March. Please book a place on your preferred session by clicking on the sign up link provided below. Note that you only need to attend ONE of the three sessions (they are duplicates). Students who are participating in the Professional Skills Curriculum will receive a PSC stamp if they attend.
