Visualise Your Thesis

Visualise Your Thesis is competition that challenges graduate researchers to summarise their research in an engaging, 60-second visual presentation.

It gives you the opportunity to build essential digital communication skills so you can effectively communicate complex research to a general audience.

What's involved

You are required to develop a 60-second presentation, using a supplied template, that encapsulates your research project. Competition submissions are judged on their visual impact, and how well the content presents the research. The competition allows for multi-media, interactivity and interpretation and is suitable for all disciplines.


You are eligible to enter if you are a current Higher Degree by Research candidate (including if your thesis is currently under examination) and have your first-year integrity milestone check by the date of submission.

How to apply

Submissions for the Visualise your Thesis 2018 competition are now closed. Applications for the next competition will open in early 2019.

A link to the online application form will be available here when applications open.
