    3 Minute Thesis Registration

    3 Minute Thesis Registration 2016

    Can you explain the importance of your research in just three minutes?

    The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a competition for postgraduate research students to present their research topic to an intelligent, non-specialist audience in an engaging way. You will have just three minutes to present a compelling presentation on your thesis topic and its significance.

    It's a great way to practice explaining your research to people who are not familiar with your field – skills that will serve you well when applying for funding or engaging media attention.

    It's also a fantastic opportunity to meet other students from across the University, hear about their research, and most importantly, have fun!

    The University-wide final will be held at Camperdown Campus on Saturday 27th August 2016. The national final will be held on Friday 30th September at the University of Queensland. More information on the 3MT competition can be found on the Three Minute Thesis website.
