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.
