Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition (Final 21st March 2017)


Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland. The exercise challenges research higher degree (PhD and MPhil) students to present a compelling oration on their thesis topic and its significance in just three minutes. 3MT develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of research students' capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

The University winner receives a prize of £500 and the chance to represent Brunel at the national 3MT Semi Finals. The runner up wins £200 and the ‘people’s choice’ winner wins £100.

The University final is open to the public and all research students and staff are encouraged to come along and vote for the ‘People’s Choice’.
