2023 3MT CompetitionAn 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present. Their time limit...3 minutes
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) 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.
