Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition at Cardiff University – Observer
Domain: D2 Communication and dissemination

An 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present. Their time limit: 3 minutes.

Cardiff University is taking part in the national 3MT® competition in 2014, which is sponsored by Vitae. A £150 prize will be awarded and our winner will progress to the UK 3MT® semi-final at which six 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 University Graduate College. At the end of the day the Cardiff winner will be announced and the £150 prize awarded.

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

We expect this to be an all-day event running from 9.30 – 4 pm but this will be confirmed after the deadline for entries has passed (13 May) and all entrants have been contacted.
