One important skill that you will develop at uni is the ability to give group and individual presentations on diverse academic topics. Oral presentation skills are essential for academic success and future employability. Being a good presenter does not only imply having good oral communication skills, but also being able to prepare engaging and effective presentations. For this reason, spending enough time preparing the content of the presentation and working on your communication skills are equally important.
The key to being a good presenter is to practice. Most presenters have become effective and engaging presenters through practice. You will find that rehearsing and preparing for your presentations will increase your confidence in your communication skills.
