The Three Minute Thesis

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) celebrates the innovative research conducted by PhD students. Created by UQ, the 3MT competition provides a worldwide platform in which university contestants effectively explain their research in three minutes, in layperson language and with the assistance of a single slide. Opportunities exist for corporate partners to support the participants, prizes and event elements of the UQ 3MT Final. At UQ, the 3MT Final features eight finalists, including winners from each Faculty and Institute competition and one Wildcard entrant. The UQ Final is attended by 300+ delegates representing researchers and scholars from a wide range of disciplines, community groups, government agencies and industry leaders.
