Three Minute Thesis Student Competition – 1st December 2016 (launch), 26th January 2017 (Heats), 9th February 2017 (Final)

It usually takes three years of hard work to research and develop a PhD thesis, but would you be able to explain yours in just three minutes? The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic research communication competition developed by the University of Queensland, Australia. It has since permeated to universities worldwide providing a platform for research candidates to present their work and its significance using just one slide and three minutes.

The Hughes Hall Three Minute Thesis competition will be held on the 9th February 2017. The ability to present a concise argument justifying the significance and impact of the candidate’s research is invaluable. This exercise will support and develop the research student’s capacity to quickly explain their research in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

Who can apply: All Hughes Hall students with a research component in any field.

Launch: 1st December 2016, 6-7pm, come along if you want more information
