“No Props, One Slide, 3 Minutes”

From January to April each year, Queen's graduate students have the opportunity attend workshops and participate in the Queen's 3 minute thesis competition.  Following that our top participants have the chance to compete against other Canadian Universities as well as our Matariki partners.

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 it 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.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia for research students.
