Three Minute Thesis challenges doctoral students to present their theses in three minutes.

The Three Minute Thesis is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland.

The exercise develops academic, presentation and research communication skills and supports the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience.

Master’s and doctoral students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis or dissertation topic and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or "dumbing-down" research but forces students to consolidate their ideas and crystallize their research discoveries.

Light refreshments will be served after the competition.
