Three Minute Thesis Competition



3MT® at Memorial

November 30, 2020

1st prize: $1000

Runner up: $500 

People's choice: $200 gift card

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed in 2008 by The University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia. Research students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivialising or 'dumbing-down' research, but challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.

The School of Graduate Studies will hold Memorial University's 3MT competition virtually on Monday, November 30, 2020, at 2 pm NT via WebEx.


Applications must be received by Friday, November 20, 2020.
