About 3MT™

Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (Australia). Research higher degree (PhD and MPhil) students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis topic and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivialising or ‘dumbing-down’ research, but challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.

3MT is a competition for graduate students to present their research topic to an intelligent, non-specialist audience in an engaging way. They will have just three minutes to present a compelling presentation on their thesis/dissertation topic and its significance.

It's a great way to practice explaining your research to people who are not familiar with your field – skills that will serve you well when applying for funding or engaging media attention.

It's also a fantastic opportunity to meet other students from across the University, hear about their research, and most importantly, have fun!
