Attending a conference (Graduate School FSW)

In an informal setting, attention will be given to cultural differences in various aspects of conference behaviour (chairing a session, networking, etc.).

Target group
PhD candidate
Maria Sherwood-Smith  (Academic English Lecturer)
Maximum number of participants

The seminar is not about how to present a paper, but aims to offer PhD candidates a modest but effective platform for speaking English more freely, also on topics other than their own research.


This course is only open and free of charge to regular PhD candidates of the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. 'External' PhD candidates may also join, but only if there is room; moreover, these students are required to pay a fee per session. 

Further, in the interest of an optimal learning experience, the instructor reserves the right to adjust the composition of groups to include representatives of the different Institutes as much as possible – so first come, first served will not always be possible.
