Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland which challenges research higher degree students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
"I would strongly encourage other research students to participate in 3MT. If early career researchers do not possess the skills to present their research in a clear and engaging way, our message, and the implications of our research, could be lost." Ryan Stafford, People's Choice, 2011 UQ 3MT
An 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present.
