Three Minute Thesis (3MT?) celebrates the exciting research conducted by Master or Doctoral students. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), the exercise cultivates students academic, presentation and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
