3MT COMPETITION IS BACK IN 2023!
What is 3MT?
The University of Queensland (UQ) Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. See more about the contest’s history on the UQ website.
