An 80,000 word PhD thesis would take nine hours to present. Our time limit? Three minutes.
Founded by the University of Queensland in 2008, the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition that cultivates students’ presentation and science communication skills by challenging them to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience after a few months of preparation.
The top three winners of the competition, which takes place annually in February, receive research funding, with the first place winner getting $1,500 and a chance to represent the university at the regional competition.
The application to participate in this year's 3MT® Competition is now open! Deadline to apply is Sept. 25.
