The Doctoral College is delighted to be running the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition for the third year - our first time running the 3MT® virtually! We invite you to join us for the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Final on Thursday 4 June, 6.30pm-7.30pm online.

The 3MT® is a research communication competition, which challenges our PhD Researchers to present their research and its impact in just 3 minutes, using non-specialist language. We will have 8 finalists presenting work across a wide range of disciplines. The Winner of the 3MT® Final will go through to represent Ulster in the UK Semi-Final of the national competition hosted by Vitae www.vitae.ac.uk.

We have had much success in the 3MT® competition. Last year, Ulster University's Oluwashina Akinsanmi (School of Geography and Environmental Sciences) won the UK 3MT® People's Choice Awards in Birmingham in September 2019. An outstanding achievement!

The 3MT® is an unmissable opportunity to hear about the excellent PhD research underway at Ulster and to support our PhD Researchers. The Finalists are:

Orlagh Feehan - Vitamin 'D' efficiency in nursing home residents: small change, big impact in a forgotten group

Natalie Fint - Knowledge is Power: How Teenagers Resist Parental Authority

Shane Harrigan - Neuromorphic Vision: Vison Has Never Been Clearer

Netzahualcoyotl Hernandez-Cruz - Teaching Gadgets to Keep Our Grandparents Safe in a Social Distancing World

Niamh McConaghy - Between the Lines of Communication: The Lived Experience of Chronic Pain

Emma Nolan - "How does that make you feel?" The Psychological Staple that Continues to Prompt Research

The online Final will be hosted by Sarah Travers and the judging panel includes Professor Cather Gormley-Heenan (Deputy Vice Chancellor), Professor Marie Murphy (Dean of Postgraduate Research and Director of Doctoral College), Time Brundle (Director of Research and Impact), Oluwashina Akinsanmi (PhD Researcher and Winner of UK People's Choice Award, 2019) and Emer Maguire (Award winning radio broadcaster, science communicator and comedian).

The Winner received a prize of £300, the Runner Up prize is £100 and the People's Choice Award prize is £100. The People's Choice award will be decided by the audience on the night via an online poll with the winner being announced on Twitter. You must register in order to receive access to the online Final.
