All campuses closed for teaching and social activities
All Campuses will now be closed for teaching and social activities
Following the clear imperative in the latest government advice to avoid all non-essential contact with others and avoid unnecessary travel, the decision has been made to suspend all teaching and social activities on campus and to close all libraries, sports facilities, theatres, catering facilities and cancel events.
We have further advice and guidance for our staff and students on our Covid-19 Corona Virus site
Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition: Heat for Jordanstown & Belfast
An 80,000 word PhD thesis would take 9 hours to present. Your time limit... 3 minutes!
The Doctoral College is delighted to announce that Ulster University will be running the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition for the first time. 3MT® was first developed by the University of Queensland, and is now a global initiative with up to 96 UK universities taking part this year in the Vitae 2018 3MT® national competition.
3MT® is an academic competition that challenges PhD Researchers to describe their research and its significance, in non-specialist language to a general audience, in just three minutes. Participation in the competition helps PhD researchers to build their confidence and hone their presentation and communication skills. It is also a great way for others to find out about the exciting and varied research going on across the University at doctoral level.
The key competition dates are:
