Registration now open for the 3 Minute Thesis Competition (3MT)

All members of the Griffith community who are currently in a higher degree by research or an honours degree are able to participate in the Griffith rounds of the 3MT.

What is the 3 Minute Thesis competition? 

Three Minute Thesis (3MT) celebrates the discoveries made by research students and encourages their skill in communicating the importance of research to the broader community. 3MT is an academic competition that challenges PhD candidates to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience. Developed by UQ it is now held at many universities across Australia, New Zealand and Asia. The competition aims to inspire, motivate and empower early-career researchers in speaking about their work and helps participants acquire valuable presentation communication skills to help promote their research. Griffith 3MT offers finalists training masterclasses in presentation and communication skills. 

All members of the Griffith community who are currently enrolled in a higher degree by research or an honours degree are able to participate in the Griffith rounds of the 3MT.
