    If my subject (film & television studies) has an annual intake of 70 students, then should I expect to have to give an oral/group presentation in front of all 70 of them in the lecture theatre?

    Or are these things split up into smaller audiences?

    Oral presentations are most likely to happen in front of a smaller group of people during a seminar. Thats what they do on my course anyway (English)

    We do them in front of everyone so between 25-35 people.

    Only thing that we do in much smaller groups is the presentation for our dissertation in the third year

    OMG, I bet that was scary. Could you not have just pretened you were ill?

    It was during Fresher's Week, as our introduction to the course...talk about throwing us in at the deep end.
    We did the presentation in a small group, but ours was the best so we got asked to re-do it in a large lecture theatre in front of the students from 4 different courses, as well as the course leaders and lecturers.

    Could've pretended I was ill, I guess, but I was shy back then, and I wanted to build up my confidence so it was the perfect opportunity to get over my fear, and it worked. I wouldn't pretend I was ill to avoid something.

    I'm studying History and have had to do a fair amount of oral presentations. However, they have only ever been in front of my seminar groups which is only usually a maximum of 15 people.

    I've usually had to do them in front of groups of about thirty - but once it was just to two lecturers. Which is kind of worse in a way, because you don't have much of an audience to make eye contact with or work up any atmosphere!
