Hovedinnhold

Target group

PhD candidates and Postdoctoral fellows who want to improve their academic writing and presentation skills in English.

This course is especially targeting the Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Psychology.

General information about the course

Mastering academic English can be as important as mastering your discipline itself. It is often decisive for conference presentations, getting published in journals and networking. Even if your general level of English is high, many scholars can benefit from expanding their skills in both written and oral presentations.

This course will have three class days: Thursday the 13th, the 20th and the 27th of October. Each class will run from 15.00 to 19.00. We expect participants to be able to attend and fully engage in every class. Each participant will be expected to prepare and give a short presentation on their research in the third class. They will also receive one 30-minute individual session with the instructor.

The course is digital and will take place via Zoom. Ten (10) participants per course.

Application deadline

Application deadline is at 3 pm the 3rd of October 2022.
