Arts 3MT 2016

Faculty of Arts Three Minute Thesis (3MT) 2016

The Three Minute Thesis is an annual research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland in 2008 and is now held in universities around the globe.

The Faculty invites you to take part in this year's 3MT Competition. We are looking for HDR candidates to share their research with an audience in an engaging and concise manner. The 3MT Competition is available to current PhD and MPhil candidates and is a forum for candidates to effectively explain their research project in three minutes in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. It's a fantastic opportunity to consolidate your ideas and research discoveries all in one dramatic 3-minute presentation. You can make it fun too!

The Faculty heat winner, runner-up and people's choice winner are expected to represent the Faculty at the next stage of the competition, the Macquarie University Finals.
