Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ). The exercise challenges graduate students to present a compelling oration on their thesis topic and its significance in just three minutes. 3MT® develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of research students' capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience according to our guidelines.
The preliminary round of the 3MT® will take place on Wednesday, November 7, from 12-2pm and on Thursday, November 8, from 2-4pm. Following the prelims, finalists will move on to a second round which will be held on Friday, November 9 from 1-3pm. Prizes will be awarded as follows:
1st place: $500 plus funding for the winner and their advisor to travel to the regional competition at the Conference of Southern Graduate Schools in Knoxville, Tennessee (February 14-16, 2019)
2nd place: $300
3rd place: $200
