Enter the Three Minute Thesis competition

3rd May, 2024

Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an international academic competition developed by the University of Queensland to cultivate students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. If you're a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) student or a Professional Doctorate (research) student, you're eligible to apply (and have the chance to win $3,000!). 

Why you should take part

3MT is a great way to showcase your research project to a whole new audience and engage with fellow researchers in the university and the wider community. It supports you in developing your capacity to effectively explain your research in a language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience.

There are cash prizes for the winners of the UTS 3MT Finals and the opportunity to represent UTS at the 2024 Virtual Asia-Pacific 3MT Competition.

Workshops to help you get started

  • 14 May: Research Pitch Fundamentals: How to talk about your research easily, clearly and effectively to ANY audience
  • 11 June: Research Communication Essentials: Summarise Your Thesis in 1 slide!

Register here for a workshop.
