Presenting your research
During your candidature and throughout your career, you will be required to present your research to a range of audiences. At first these audiences are most likely to be academic, people with similar research backgrounds to yourself, but later the audiences may be more diverse and include community groups, business leaders, politicians and the media.
To help you to become an effective communicator in a large range of settings the LTU Research Education team provides face-to-face workshops that can be found through the RESA workshops web page.
