 "One slide, no props, 3 minutes"

3MT® is a university wide competition for Queen’s Masters (thesis or research project) and doctoral students in which participants present their research and its wider impact in 3 minutes or less to a panel of non-specialist judges.

Distilling research into a clear form, without over-simplifying or making overly-complex, and highlighting the wider implications of this research are important skills to carry into post-graduate employment and public service.

This is a unique opportunity to communicate the innovative and significant research undertaken by our graduate students.

2015 Competition to be held in March - Registration will be open in January 2015

The School of Graduate Studies wishes you all a safe and happy holiday season.  We look forward to meeting our new students in January 2015.
