Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT)


3MT logoThree 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.

3MT Asia-Pacific Semi-Finals

The Asia Pacific semi-finals of the 3MT will be held in Brisbane on 4th October. Winners from Universities around Australia and the Asia-Pacific compete for a place in the finals.

The semi-finals program can be viewed here.

Our CDU winner, Kat Tuite, will compete at approximately 11:00am Darwin time. You can watch her via livestream here. I recommend joining the livestream 15-30 minutes early in case the competition is running ahead of schedule.

The Finals will also be livestreamed here from approx 2:15pm Darwin time.
