3MT Three Minute Thesis Competition

What is the 3MT® Three Minute Thesis?

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) celebrates the exciting research conducted by Doctoral students around the world. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), the competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT® competition increases your capacity to effectively explain your research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to an intelligent non-specialist audience.
