Winner Announced! FASS Three Minute Thesis (3MT) – 2018 Faculty Heat

FASS Three Minute Thesis (3MT) – 2018 Faculty Heat

The Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT) Faculty Heat for 2018 was held on July 2nd. Chaired by Ruth Phillips, Associate Dean Research Education (FASS) it was supported by generous colleagues who agreed to judge the event, fellow HDR students and guests. The event was well organised due to the efforts of Venice Jureidini-Briozzo, Manager Research Education (FASS).

Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a national and international competition that recognises the exciting research undertaken by higher degree research students. 3MT challenges students to explain their research project to a non-specialist audience in three minutes using only one slide.

FASS will hold the 3MT Heat each year to encourage the engagement of HDR students within the Faculty and to ensure we compete at the university level.

After our hardworking judges, Dr Bob Hudson, Dr Debra Talbot and Dr Alankaar Sharma assessed each presentation according to the 3MT Rules, 3 small prizes were awarded by FASS to 1st, 2nd and 3rd placegetters:

This year's six 3MT participants and winners!
