Course overview

Learn to write well, publish in leading journals, and deliver quality public presentations.

I found particularly useful the expertise of speakers. The practical writing as well as presentation parts of the course were particularly useful as they helped to put the theory into practise. Also, advice was really helpful.

I learnt at least 5 important aspects of presentation and academic writing everyday during the 5 day course which made all aspects of the course useful.

This short one week course

combines three key skills essential to most people and particularly important for academics and researchers.

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 are major challenges for all scientists.

Disseminating knowledge is another challenge for researchers, which makes presentation / public speaking skills crucial. The power of knowledge can be much greater with skills to present / disseminate it.

Course brochure with further information is available on request.


The course is taught by internationally renowned academics, with extensive experience of publishing, reviewing and editing for top journals and presenting to diverse audiences. The presenting part is taught by experts in Public Speaking, with extensive teaching experience internationally.

Of thousands of degree-granting universities, Goldsmiths Psychology department is in the World top 100 in the QS ranking for academic reputation. Papers by our academics are highly cited: we hold the 55 place among the Worlds' Psychology departments for the number of citations published per paper.

The director of the course, Professor Yulia Kovas, also runs a similar one-day course of Academic Writing at the British Psychological Society.
