The ANU Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition final
An 80,000 word research project would take nine hours to present. Their time limit . . . three minutes!
Join us for an evening of education and entertainment. Come along to the Australian National University (ANU) and see a snapshot of the amazing research projects that are being conducted on the campus by PhD students.
On the night, watch twelve finalists battle it out for the ANU 3MT crown, $4000 in prize money and a ticket to the 3MT grand final (an international competition, which will be held at the University of Queensland later this year). Plus, cast your vote to help pick the winner of the People’s Choice award. The audience favourite will take home a $500 cash prize.
After the competition, you will have the chance to mix and mingle with the competitors and judges over wine and canapés.
What is Three Minute Thesis (3MT)?
The 3MT is an international competition for research students to showcase their research. Students have to talk about what their research is and why it is important in plain language for three minutes, with only a single PowerPoint slide.
3MT heats and finals will take place within the seven ANU Colleges in August. The event registration page will be populated with names and presentation titles as those chosen to compete at the ANU final are identified.
When: Wednesday 16 September 6.30-8pm
Where: Llewellyn Hall, ANU School of Music
