Birmingham Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition

The Three Minute Thesis competition gives you just three minutes to deliver an engaging presentation on your thesis topic, its originality and its significance. This is a great opportunity to develop your presentation and research communication skills, raise the profile of your research and have the chance to compete to represent Birmingham at national and international level.

College heats will take place on Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 May, and a University final will be held on Wednesday 11 June. Prizes will be offered, as well as the chance to represent Birmingham in the first UK-wide 3MT competition, and to compete for a travel bursary worth $2,500 (USD) in the virtual Universitas 21 3MT Final 2014.
