The Virtual Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ). Research higher degree (PhD and MPhil) students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance.
3MT is not an exercise in trivialising or ‘dumbing-down’ research but challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.
CDU students who have passed their Confirmation of Candidature are welcome to compete.
