The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) students. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), 3MT cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
Higher education institutions around the world participate in the Three Minute Thesis Competition every year. It has become a global event with over 600 institutions participating in over 80 countries. This year the UK semi-final will be an online event, the UK final is planned to take place as a live event, held at the 2020 Vitae Researcher Development International Conference.
