Cardiff University is taking part in the national 3MT® competition in 2017. There are four prizes up for grabs including a people's choice award voted by the audience. Our winner will progress to the UK 3MT® online semi-final from which the national finalists will be identified.

What is a Three Minute Thesis?
Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by the University of Queensland. It challenges postgraduate research students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

The 3MT® competition provides an opportunity for students to share their research, in a challenging and compelling way.

Our entrants will give their three minute presentation to an audience of their peers and fellow entrants, together with a selection panel appointed by the Doctoral Academy. At the end of the day the Cardiff winner will be announced the prizes awarded and afternoon refreshments provided.

This competition is all about engaging an audience so please come along and cheer on your friends!
