Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Preliminary Competition Registration Form

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.

In response to the need to follow social distancing measures, The University of Queensland has developed official rules for holding university competitions remotelyIn order to compete this year, students will submit a video recording of their 3 minute presentation and powerpoint slide following these rules by November 6th. All registrants will receive a confirmation email that includes an upload link along with further directions for submitting their recording and slide by November 9th. The deadline to complete the online registration is November 1st, a week before all submissions are due.

A virtual competitor guide is available to assist students developing their video presentations. In addition, visit our events page to view the dates of remote workshops and practice sessions.

The preliminary rounds of the 3MT® competition will take place remotely via zoom on Wednesday, November 11, beginning at 12 pm, and on Thursday, November 12, beginning at 2 pm.

Following the prelims, finalists will move on to a second round of virtual competitions on Thursday, December 17th beginning at 2pm.

The 3MT Competition preliminary round will take place remotely over two days, November 11 and November 12. While presentations will be pre-recorded, you are welcome to attend these sessions. Please indicate the dates that you are available to view the competition and the Graduate School will work to accommodate you. Please select all dates that apply.
