3 Minute Thesis 2021 Competition

The 3 Minute Thesis competition for 2021 has now closed. Stay tuned for details of the 2022 competition which will be available early next year.

Big congratulations to Matthew Holden who will now represent the Arts faculty at the University finals.

Uma Muthia took out the Arts People's Choice award after the voting poll closed on 25 June and will enter the University Wildcard Competition to battle it out for another opportunity to participate in the University finals.

What is the 3 Minute Thesis competition?

3MT® is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate research and share it with the community, all within the context of an exciting and supportive competition.

An 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present - these researchers have 3 minutes!

The winner of this Arts Faculty round will then proceed to compete at the University final, where they could walk away with $5000 and be on the way to represent Monash at the Asia Pacific final!
