Three Minute Thesis

12 August 2024 - 14 August 2024 | Events

Each year, our research students have the opportunity to compete in the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition.

3MT is a lively, engaging research communication competition initially developed by the University of Queensland and now held annually at more than 900 universities across the globe.

The Three Minute Thesis competition (3MT) — University of Queensland

It challenges research students to answer the question, ‘What are you researching?’, in no more than 3 minutes and with only 1 powerpoint slide. The 3-minute presentation should be pitched to an intelligent but non-academic audience. 

The competition provides research students with valuable practice in communicating their research clearly and concisely to a general audience.

They will develop their ability to tell an engaging research story, build their presentation and public speaking skills, improve their peer and industry networks, increase their confidence and employability and gain exposure for their research.
