How to create a recorded talk

as part of your IMPRS-BAC application

January 29, 2024

Congratulations! You are here because you have been asked to send us a recorded presentation about a research project as part of your application to the IMPRS-BAC graduate program.

Please create an .mp4 file of this 10-minute talk by February 8th, 2024 (23:59 CET), and either email it to or drop the file here:

Below are instructions of how to create this file using the popular free software Zoom. Other options are of course available.

  • Open your prepared presentation.

  • Start Zoom.

  • Make sure microphone and camera are switched on. If you do not have access to a camera, a microphone is sufficient.

  • Click on "Share Screen", select the window with your presentation.

  • If possible, view the presentation in full screen and have the small speaker window visible in a corner. 

  • Click on "Record" (It should be visible if you click on “Plus” on the right side of the menu).

  • Give your presentation as you would do to an audience.

  • After your talk, stop sharing, stop recording, end meeting.

  • Your recording is now being automatically converted to an .mp4 file.

  • Send this .mp4 file to the IMPRS at or drop it at (it will not be visible to other candidates).

  • Congratulations, you are done!
