3 Minute Thesis Competition 2022

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!

This year's Faculty of Arts 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition was held in person on Tuesday 28 June 2022.
