3 Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition Overview - Your Research Matters – Share It!
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT® ) competition celebrates the exciting research being conducted by graduate students. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), the exercise cultivates student’s academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. The first 3MT® competition was held at University of Queensland (UQ) in 2008 with 160 research higher degree students competing. In 2009 and 2010, the 3MT® competition was promoted to other Australian and New Zealand universities and enthusiasm for the concept grew. Since 2011 the popularity of the competition has increased and 3MT® competitions are now held in over 170 universities across more than 18 countries worldwide. Students interested in participating in the competition at Notre Dame must attend an information session:
