Graduate School: Three Minute Thesis (3MT®)

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by the University of Queensland in 2008, in which doctoral researchers have just three minutes to deliver an engaging presentation on their thesis topic, its originality and its significance.

With universities across the world now holding their own 3MT competitions, the Graduate School are delighted to be running a University of Birmingham 3MT and to invite our own doctoral researchers to participate in such a highly-regarded competition.

If you are a current doctoral researcher interested in developing your presentation and research communication skills, raising the profile of your research and having the chance to win an international research bursary, we warmly encourage you to take part.

After you submit your application, you will also receive expert training to help you polish your presentation skills for the heat event and the 3MT final.

For more information on how to take part in the next competition, contact the Graduate School or visit the website.
