Presentation Skills


The Importance of Oral Presentation Skills

What are the Presentation Workshops?
In many cases at NMBU, students are expected to give an oral presentation, either in-class, with a student organization, in an oral exam or Master’s defence. While students are expected to perform well, they rarely receive instruction on how to give a strong presentation. Oral presentation skills are not only useful for students while studying at NMBU, but are also transferrable to professional life after university. Bachelor students may be asked to present their independent research in class, Master students must give an oral defence of their thesis, and within professional careers, we can all expect to attend or even host meetings.
