This course covers the wide range of issues that need to be considered when conducting or preparing to give conference presentation in English. All presentations are recorded and detailed feedback is provided. This course is open to PhD-candidates, employees and external clients.
In an academic writing course, you’ll learn how to express yourself using formal, precise and nuanced language. The language centre offers a general PhD course for PhD candidates and master’s students in all disciplines. We also offer IMRaD courses for master’s and PhD candidates in Psychology, Biomedical Sciences and Health Sciences.
'The reason why I chose the Language Centre was because the course was an online one. It turned out to be a very stimulating and positive experience, not in the least because of the input of an enthusiastic mediator (Neill Wylie). The course is for different levels of PhD’s, novice as well as more experienced. I am confident this course helps me to further improve my academic writing skills!’

The Cambridge English Exams are internationally recognised exams that can be used to demonstrate that you have the language skills to live, study or work in an English-speaking environment. The courses run over 24 weeks with one two-hour session per week. You’ll also be required to do at least 2 hours of private study each week.
The Effective Communication courses focus on helping you become a more confident and fluent user of English. You’ll improve your English skills through practicing a variety of communicative tasks, such as discussions, negotiations, and teamwork reports.
