Visualise Your Thesis
Thank you to everyone who took part in the Visualise Your Thesis (VYT) competition for 2020! It was an incredibly successful event and we were so pleased with the response we had in this, our first year taking part.
We were overwhelmed with the response and the high standard of presentations, receiving 39 entries across all faculties, including our international campuses.
You can view the 2020 entries here.
Visualise Your Thesis (VYT) was developed in 2015 by the University of Melbourne.
The competition calls for participants to create an engaging 60 second audio visual representation of their thesis that can be received by a general audience, using a pre-supplied template.
