About the competition
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland, and celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students in Australia and around the world.
Do you think you could present your entire PhD thesis to a general audience in just 3 minutes?
Beginning in 2008, the first 3MT® competition was held at UQ with 160 Higher Degree by Research (HDR) candidates competing.
Just one year later in 2009, the 3MT® competition was promoted to other Australian and New Zealand universities and enthusiasm for the concept grew.
Now, 3MT® is held in over 900 universities across more than 80 countries worldwide.
3MT FINALS WILL BE HELD IN A VIRTUAL FORMAT
As a result of the current COVID-19 restrictions, The University of Queensland (UQ) has moved the 2020 Asia Pacific Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition to a virtual format. Competitors will be required to enter via a pre-recorded video submission.
UQ also require that the Monash final be judged by pre-recorded video submission in order to ensure consistency and avoid disadvantages that might occur as a result of technical issues in a live feed.
