The Student Development and Study Skills Service offer practical advice and workshops and have several resources that can help with presentations.

Presentation anxiety

Whether working in a group or on your own, giving a presentation can be a daunting experience and it is normal and very common to experience anxiety. A certain amount of adrenalin can increase our ability to present well, but some people feel unable to control their anxiety which can then affect their performance.


The Wellbeing Service has produced a list of useful self-help links. These are web-based resources you can use yourself to deal with anxiety.

If the stress of University life is causing you to feel worried, frightened or confused and you feel you can’t cope, than you may wish to seek help from the University’s Wellbeing service.
