About the 3MT

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), the exercise 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.

The finalists will be competing for three cash awards. A panel of judges will pick the Winner ($1000) and the Runner-Up ($750) on the 11th. The audience will select the People’s Choice ($500) winner. All award recipients will be announced during the April 15 event.

The winner will have the opportunity to compete in other competitions, including the Council of Southern Graduate School competition.
