This 1-week course combines three key skills that are important for most people and essential for academics and researchers – writing, publishing and public speaking.

As science is becoming truly international, researchers are faced with the challenge of publishing in established international journals. Developing a strong publication and citation track-record is a major challenge for all scientists.

Dissemination of knowledge and promotion of ideas is another important part of a career in research, academia and other professions. The power of knowledge can be much greater when knowledge is well-presented.

During the practical sessions, you will be provided with feedback and guidance specific to improving your skills; and have the opportunity to receive guidance on specific areas of your interest.

By attending this course, you will:

  • Improve your academic writing skills. 
  • Be able to: spot more easily when the text needs to be improved; understand how to approach revision; revise text to make it clearer, more logical and succinct.
  • Have a good insight into the publication process. 
  • Acquire knowledge about the publication process that will make the process more efficient and less stressful. 
  • Receive practical advice for each stage of the publication process: writing, revising and submitting manuscripts to a suitable journal; communicating with the editorial team; responding to editorial decision; revising and resubmitting the manuscript.
  • Have a good foundation for becoming an efficient reviewer for academic journals.
  • Gain public speaking and presentation skills applicable in a variety of contexts such as conferences, election campaigns, diplomacy activities, lecturing, management talks/board meetings, oral exams, PhD Viva as well as the emerging context of  online, virtual events.

Campus Courses - VAT-free: Our venues are in central London (Senate House) and in New Cross. You can select your preferred location by choosing the date available.
Virtual Classroom Courses - VAT-free: Live tutoring brings all the benefits of face to face training and, in addition, improves skills for ‘digital’ participation. There is an increasing need for online activities in all areas of life. Meetings, interviews, presentations and conferences are increasingly opting for participation and contribution via digital platforms. Courts have introduced video-advocacy and judging. Consulting, counselling, advertising, sales, and client support of all kinds are all moving to digital formats. Therefore, ‘digital’ participation and the necessary skills for online delivery of Public Speaking are becoming an essential skill of the 21st century.
